Welcome to the official website of the South West Chapter of Widows Sons, the Masonic Bikers Association in the South West region of the United Kingdom.
The main charity we support is Ambers Angels Trust, a new organisation based in Plymouth. They provide a range of valuable services for adult and children survivors of sexual abuse. They receive no government funding, yet have set up a drop in centre that provides counselling and respite care. They celebrated the 1st Anniversary of their unit being open in May this year, and we were there to join in the celebration. It is the first and only drop in centre in the whole of the UK for survivors of sexual abuse.
This June, we escorted two maids to the school prom held at Tregenna Castle, St Ives. As well as many thanks, and miles of smiles, they gave us a donation towards the charities that we support.
Also in June we joined our brothers from the South East Chapter on the Cornwall and Devon section of their 12 Provinces in 24 Hours challenge to raise money for Lifelites charity.
Last year we held Rob's Run, a ride from Plymstock to Dartmouth, in September. More than 70 motorcyles from the wider biking community took part, and our event raised over £1,100. This year's Rob's Run will be on 18th September.
Last year we were sad to annouce the passing of our Vice President, W. Bro. Rob Walls. Our memorial page to him can be found here.
We also supported the Moorlanders MCC Egg Run on Easter Sunday, 27th March, and assisted in the safe and efficient marshalling of the ride. Thanks to donations from several Lodges, we were able to contribute £3,500 raised for local children's charities.
Well done all!
