Our chief executive recently went on what was possibly the wackiest relay ever. The challenge, dubbed ‘Lift for Lifelites’, involved Simone Enefer-Doy visiting nearly 50 famous landmarks in England and Wales in a variety of weird and wonderful modes of transport in 14 days, all with the help of Freemasons across the country.
It was an eventful 14 days: she sat in a spitfire, went on the fastest zipwire in the world, rode in a DeLorean (no time travelling was involved), stood on the podium at Silverstone, took a speedboat down the river Thames, and waited very patiently while a flat tyre had to be replaced on a four seater plane which was due to take her to Jersey.
The challenge has raised a staggering £103,867.41 - and counting! Simone wants to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported the challenge, whether that was by driving Simone, donating money or providing any other support along the way. She has the following message:
The money raised will help us contiue to donate assistive technology to life-limited and disabled children in hospices across the British Isles. This life changing technology helps children to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as it is possible. Read about some of the children we’ve helped here.
