Widows Sons Vision 2020 Lifeboat Run - Friday, 29th May 2020 to Monday, 1st June 2020

In support of the Grand Master’s Festival a group of Widows Sons on motorcycles intend to visit one RNLI station in each of the Masonic Provinces of Ireland/ Metropolitan District over a period of four days. Midland Counties does not have an RNLI station but is still very much part of Vision 2020 and our fundraising effort.

In order to complete this endeavour, they plan to leave Galwally House in Belfast on Friday 29th May 2020 and visit twelve Masonic Provinces and the Metropolitan District over a period of four days.

Any funds raised will be for all the chosen charities of Vision 2020, and not specifically for RNLI.


Any contributions received from Lodges within each Province/Metropolitan District should be recorded on your sponsorship form and the proceeds returned to WSMBA Ireland, all the details are on the reverse side of your sponsorship form.

Each Lodge contribution will be acknowledged and there will be a report the overall outcome of funds raised after the closing date of 30th July 2020.

The aim of Widows Sons Masonic Bikers Association Ireland is to afford Freemasons in Ireland an opportunity to promote Freemasonry on the island of Ireland and to be seen as a part of Society and not apart from Society. This as an opportunity to raise our community profile.

Widows Sons Masonic Bikers Association Ireland are already working with RNLI and hope to have lifeboat crews or representatives from RNLI to meet them at each of the stations they visit together with their media staff and would be pleased to have Provincial Officers and Masons from Subordinate Lodges in that particular Province meet them and symbolically “hand over” contributions for publicity purposes.
