Today, Simone continued her journey through Wales. First stop, Cardiff, although it almost felt as though she was in a fairy tale given the day’s first landmark, Castell Coch. Simone was welcomed by Rob Payne and Marc Lewis of the South Wales Masons who showed her around the beautiful grounds. She was then escorted to her next stop in a newly and lovingly restored 1958 MGA, owned and driven by local Freemason Spiro Ginis, but not before being presented with a cheque for £1,000 for Lifelites.
The next stop for Simne and the Lift for Lifelites team was in the county of Monmouthshire where she was photographed in front of the only remaining fortified river bridge in the country: Monnow Bridge. She was met by Monmouthshire Freemason Paul Harris who provided her with her next lift, in his gorgeous Aston Martin DB9.
After lunch, it was onwards to Gloucestershire and the Cotswold Motoring Museum and Toy Collection at Bourton-on-the-Water. Check out the mini made out of bushes outside! Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time to play with the toys in the collection as Alex Bridges arrived in her flashy Mercedes SLK (also known as Sadie) to whisk Simone away to her next stop in Oxfordshire.
Simone was met in the stunning grounds of the magnificent Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill by Oxfordshire Freemasons Roger Hampshire and his son Martin, along with their very special Morris Minors and Mk 2 Cortina. It was a beautiful end to quite a long day – not bad for a Monday though!
