Our chief executive Simone Enefer-Doy began her epic 3,000 mile fundraising road trip for Lifelites today, which will see her visit 48 different landmarks across England and Wales.
She left London in a London Fire brigade BMW i3, accompanied by motorcyclists from Iceni Widows Sons, which took her to her first stop in West Kent. The lift was very kindly organised by the Metropolitan Grand Lodge. No turning back now!
Simone’s first stop was Brands Hatch in West Kent, where she was met by a 1930 Morris Cowley Tourer and a sizeable welcome party of West Kent Freemasons, who very kindly came out to wish her well on her travels and to present her with a cheque for £500.
She was driven to her next stop in West Kent, the Chatham Historic Dockyard, where she was met by another equally impressive classic car, a 1977 Ford Thunderbird. After another generous cheque presentation of £500 from the East Kent Freemasons, she was on her way to her final stop of the day in the Essex.
The award for the quirkiest vehicle of the day certainly went to the Essex Freemasons, who met Simone at Tilbury fort in a Tuk Tuk! They also presented her with a cheque for £2,500.
Total miles travelled: 95
