WBro Dermot Ferguson (Broadsmith Lodge No. 3593) recently undertook a gruelling 50 mile run from Liverpool to Manchester to raise much needed funds for his chosen local Wallasey Charity ‘Charlottes Brightside’ which provides a ‘safe haven’ for local youngsters.
The event was organised by GB Ultras who specialise in ‘Ultra Marathon’ events and saw some 400+ runners enduring weather conditions which can only de described as ‘atrocious’. Dermot covered the distance in just over 12.5hrs, which was an incredible feat (no pun intended!!).
As a result of the efforts of Dermot & his two running companions, the event has raised almost £10,000 with Dermot having received financial sponsorship from both his Lodge & Area One. If anyone other Brother feels he can help to push the final total even higher, all donations will be thankfully received and faithfully applied.
