Many thanks for all your donation to the Masons4Munros Challenge, which was completed on Sunday 25 June.
This was a fantastic experience and has allowed me to add another achievement as I have always felt that I would like to attempt climbing a Munro.
Thanks to everyone who has donated to this very worthwhile cause, which has helped me to raise the sum of £1,815.00 with the overall sum raised now standing at £12,063.00 and rising.
I would thank the Brethren from the Province of Fife and Kinross who also took part in this challenge for their company and support throughout the last three weekends.

One in ten men in Scotland is at risk of prostate cancer and nearly one in two is likely to have prostate disease at some stage in their life. Over 4,000 people are diagnosed with prostate cancer in Scotland a year. Prostate Scotland is working in partnership with the Grand Lodge of Scotland to help ameliorate the effects of going through treatment for prostate cancer and disease, as well as to research further into the impact of living with prostate disease. Together we are aiming to make available special care packs (PROSPACKS) to help to men in Scotland going through treatment if they are having surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy for prostate cancer. These packs will contain a range of helpful and essential items to help men as they go through treatment. We are also aiming to take forward research into living with prostate disease.
