The Trustees of the Mark Benevolent Fund are delighted to have awarded over £300,000 to 17 Blood Bike charities in England and Wales that are members of the Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes.
The charities, who were all assessed on their own merits, will benefit from 9 Blood Bikes and 8 Blood Cars between them.
The funds come from the Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons who took part in the Mark Benevolent Charity Walk last May, raising an astounding £437,934.
This comes as we celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Mark Benevolent Fund.
The charities to benefit are:
Blood Bikes Cumbria, Blood Bikes Wales, Devon Freewheelers EVS
Lincolnshire Emergency BBS, Merseyside & Cheshire BB,
Midland Freewheelers EVS, Nottinghamshire Blood Bikes, SERV OBN,
