MASONS are riding across Yorkshire for charity.

Eighteen people will cycle from Scarborough to Mirfield on Saturday to raise money for Kirkwood Hospice and Macmillan Nurses.

John Helliwell, senior deacon at Mirfield Masonic Lodge, said: “We chose those charities because our members have connections with them.”

The group will set off on the 84-mile ride from Scarborough Masonic Lodge at 8am tomorrow.

They will arrive in Mirfield in time for a fundraising supper at the Masonic lodge on King Street from 8pm.
