Dorset Freemasons in Fire Drama!!

Dorset Brethren had to pause their fundraising cycle ride in aid of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance this weekend to assist in an emergency situation they discovered enroute.

As Rob Clark (of Ferndown Lodge), Kev Smith (Lodge of Unity), Steve Dineen (Dunckerley Lodge) and Steve Soutar (Canford Lodge) were cycling near Cadnam they came across a fire; they quickly went to the scene and discovered the source was in a Nursing Home!

Our intrepid riders quickly abandoned their bikes and helped the excellent staff of the Nursing Home to carry some of the residents down the stairs to safety. The fire was extinguished by crews from Romsey, St Mary's and Eastleigh fire stations. All residents were unharmed and were able to return to the Home later that day.

Having done their duty, our gallant brethren saddled up, completed their 62 mile cycle ride and returned to Kinson Masonic Hall, having helped raise much needed funds for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance!

As always, Dorset Freemasonry Cares!
