Operation: Ypres

The Connaught Club Expeditionary Force will be embarking on a cycle ride, setting off from FMH in the early hours of Friday 5th September to head to the battlegrounds of Ypres to mark the centenary commemorations of WW1, which as we know culminated in the building of our peace memorial building, London’s Freemason’s Hall.

The Event

It will be a hard, 2 day slog to get to Belgium before we make a swift return via coach Sunday afternoon.

This will be an epic and memorable tour and requires a great deal of planning.  I look forward to working with you all to assist in raising a great deal of money for charity.

Charity fundraising will be split between:

The Royal British Legion http://www.britishlegion.org.uk/

and the “Wiltshire Barn”, a non Masonic social enterprise for wounded ex-serviceman.  http://www.wiltshirebarn.co.uk/
