Widows Sons support Warriors Community Foundation

The Worcester chapter of widows sons are supporting the warriors community foundation dementia charity, and today attended the kick off of their jubilee celebrations.


THE Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations kicked off as a group of bikers rode into Worcester in support of a Jubilee charity party for people with dementia.

The Widows Son's Worcestershire chapter is a Freemason biker group, which is supporting the Worcester Warriors Community Trust's work with dementia.

The Bikers arrived at the stadium at 2pm, making their way over to where the celebrations were being held to meet everyone.


Andy Philpott, President Worcestershire Chapter Widows Sons MBA, said: "We are a group of Freemasons and a large part of what we do is charity. We have chosen the Worcester Warriors Community Trust as our charity of the year, specifically the dementia group."


"Dementia is close to many of our hearts and it's such a worthwhile charity. I contacted Carol and we were able to arrange us heading down the bikes, having a chat with people and letting them see the bikes."


"We have a great collection of styles, lots are Harley-Davidson's and some with sidecars as well. We are really happy with how it turned out."


Many of the attendees at the event were stepping out from under the gazebos to come and look at the bikes, where the group were happily answering any questions and chatting with those in attendance.


The bikers also took part in a cheque presentation on behalf of the Chapter.


Carol Hart, CEO of the Warriors Community Foundation, said: "The event has been amazing, we have a regular dementia cafe here at Sixways Stadium every Wednesday from 10.30 to 12.


"We just wanted to put on a jubilee event for those that are suffering with and living with dementia as well as their carers.

"We have 80 people who attend our cafes on a regular basis as well as lots of our partners who support the work that we do.

"For a lot of people, this will be the only jubilee event they will be able to get to throughout the festivities so it's been lovely to see everybody having such a good time."
