Tom Stewart of the Widows Son’s Masonic Bikers Association will deliver every Easter egg this year, and praised Kathryn from Tesco for her assistance
Bunnies are, contrary to popular belief, much less effective at egg delivery work than the Northumbria Chapter of the Widows Son’s Masonic Bikers Association, who yearly deliver more than 1,000 Easter eggs by motorcycle to special schools, food banks, care homes, veterans’ charities and youth centres across North Tyneside, Newcastle, Northumberland and County Durham.
The eggs have been generously donated by supermarkets, businesses, and masonic lodges from the Province of Northumberland. This year, due to the Corona bug, Tom will deliver the eggs solo. He said:
“It’s been difficult as I’ve had to ensure everyone is safe and that I follow government instructions on social distancing. It’s been a case of ringing up in advance, arranging a safe place to put the eggs and then leaving without any contact.”
I’m really grateful for the help we’ve been given by so many businesses, but particular thanks must go to Kathryn, who is the Community Champion for Tesco in Consett and went the extra mile
Tom has also taken to carrying a few eggs with him on his daily exercise walk from his home.
“I’ve been leaving anonymous eggs on the doorsteps of houses I see on my walk where the kids have put their NHS Rainbows drawings in their widows. It’s nice to do something positive during the crisis we are all facing.”
The Widows Sons is open to all Freemasons who enjoy the sport of motorcycling.
