3 Peaks Challenge
Apr 26 all-day

Brethren,

It is my intention to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in three days in the company of my Son, David and my Grandson, Joshua who is 10yrs of age. Joshua overheard my plans to complete the Challenge and immediately volunteered to complete the task, knowing what the reason was, namely, to raise funds for Charity the East Lancashire Masonic Benevolent Fund (ELMBF).

The Challenge will take place I feel I do not have to remind the Mark Masons of the Province of the worked carried out by the ELMBF, but its funds do require constant replenishing. This task will commence on the 26th April on Ben Nevis in Scotland, followed by Scafell Pike, in the Lake District concluding with Snowdon in Wales.

To support the ELMBF, I respectfully request that you do so my sponsoring by completing the attached sponsorship form and if appropriate ‘ticking’ the Gift Aid declaration. Please return the Sponsorship Form and Funds for the attention of: –
Provincial Grand Charity Steward
