The Herne Bay Charity Shop is back open and has been doing amazingly.
Toy Run 2019
The annual Strode Park Toy Run returned on Sunday (December 1) as bikers from the East Kent Widows Sons dressed up in festive costumes to deliver presents to some of the disabled children.
The impressive parade of bikers came from Sittingbourne to Strode Park House in Herne to deliver toys by the bucket load for the children who use Strode Park’s children’s home in Canterbury and for Strode’s other fundraising events and activities.
Sully Bragg, who is the President of the East Kent Widows Sons said: “We’ve got a register of charities that the province support but we always like to pick a few that aren’t supported on this register and Strode Park Foundation is one of those charities. We collect money and put the bins out in the masonic centres and we take donations of toys and then buy more with the money we collect. Fundamentally this is all about the children at Christmas time.”
Karen Jeal, Strode Park’s Fundraising, Marketing and PR Manager added: “The generosity of this group is just phenomenal and we are glad to be in their thoughts not just at Christmas but all year round. We have a very special relationship with the bikers and we are very grateful for their continued support.”
The Widows Sons is an International Association which is open to all Freemasons who enjoy motorcycling and have a desire to ride with and associate with their fraternal brothers.
