The 'Stonecutters Widows Sons' supporting the Dorset 'Doc Bikes'.

Jamie (Ozzy) Osborn presented £500 to Paramedic Rob Walker at the Cashmoor Inn in Blandford. The money was raised by the Stonecutters during the 'Big Ride' charity trip around the United Kingdom which was completed in 4 days, covering over 2000 miles.

The Stonecutters Widows Sons of Wiltshire and Dorset are Freemasons from various Lodges within both Provinces.

Paramedic Rob arrived on his BMW 1250cc RT and explained to Andy Gale, the Dorset Prov Communication Officer, that it costs £50K a year to keep two Doc Bikes on the road. Rob was grateful to the Freemasons as they have contributed a considerable sum since the introduction of the service.
