Simone's penultimate day of Lift for Lifelites started at the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum in Hampshire, along with a very impressive turnout of local Freemasons, including Widows Sons motorcyclists, 1717 demonstration team in costume and members of the Chequered Flag classic car Lodge. After trying out a tractor, Simone was given a lift in a 1967 MGB GT, but was also escorted to Southampton Airport by a Porsche and several motorcycles outriders – it was quite a sight.
Simone took to the skies for her next stop as she made her way to Jersey. She was met at the airport by Jersey Freemasons, who gave her a lift to the La Corbière Lighthouse in an Austin 12/4 Clifton tourer. She was then lifted in the air with a very special private plane courtesy of Guernsey Freemasons.
In Guernsey she was met by some of the island’s Freemasons who gave her a lift in a wartime motorbike sidecar to a local landmark called the Little Chapel. This is the smallest functioning chapel in Europe and is a miniature version of the Rosary Basilica in Lourdes. After visiting this beautiful site, the Freemasons gave Simone a lift back to the airport in a 1958 Jaguar, and then handed her a cheque for £250. The end of another successful day!
