As the Worshipful Master of Wessex Lodge of Fidelity for the year 2019/20, Gary has chosen the Fareham and Gosport Division of SSAFA as his nominated charity. SSAFA (originally called the Soldiers' and Sailors' Families Association) has been supporting the Armed Forces family for more than 130 years. In 2019, their work continues to be as vital to the military community and wider society as it was over one hundred years ago.   


The local division has 20 trained unpaid volunteers providing practical and emotional support for serving personnel, veterans and military families across the area.

In order to raise as much money for this charity as possible, Gary has entered the Isle of Wight Challenge which takes place over the weekend of the 4th & 5th May, which consists of a 106 km hike in 24 hours. So far this has raised just over £1200.
