Over the summer, inspired by the Provincial Executive, many Buckinghamshire Freemasons completed a range of challenges to raise funds for various charities and the 2021 MCF festival. Amongst these was W.Bro Dave Harfield who undertook the 1 Million step challenge to raise funds for Diabetes UK.
In total, thanks to the generosity of many Freemasons, friends, and work colleagues, Dave raised (including Gift Aid) £1,007.70. To achieve this he took 1,657,072 steps, covering 760.92 miles, and lost over a Stone whilst completing this challenge.
Having recently been promoted to Provincial Grand Steward, and even though the challenge has been successfully completed, Dave is still walking now just for fun and fitness and most importantly, to try and minimise the inevitable weight gain from attending all of the Installation and other Masonic meetings he and his fellow Stewards are aiming to, over the next year.
