The Provincial Grand Lodge of Mark Masters Masons in London has donated three motorcycles to SERV Surrey & South London, who provide quick delivery of essential blood and blood products between hospitals overnight.
The Mark Master Masons donated a Yamaha FJR1300 named Mark and two Triumph Tiger 800s named Keystone, and Mallet and Chisel.
Hugh Terry, Chairman of SERV S&SL, commented, “We’re very grateful to The Provincial Grand Lodge of Mark Masters Masons for the generous donation of these three motorbikes which will be a very valuable addition to our fleet of vehicles.”
Terry continued, “Being able to add these to our fleet will help us to continue providing the best service to the hospitals in our region. Most of our volunteers use their own bikes, paying for their own fuel, maintenance and other costs. By providing our volunteers with alternative motorbikes they can save wear and tear on their own machines but more importantly we can expand our service.”
SERV Surrey and South London was set up in 1981 to transport emergency blood products over night free of charge to free up funds for patient care and other facilities within the hospital.
David Ashbolt, Provincial Grand Master for London in the Mark Degree, added, “The service that the SERV Surrey and South London volunteers provide is an essential service and, at the Provincial Grand Lodge of Mark Masters Masons, we’re proud to be able to support the charity with the provision of these three motorbikes.”
