A group of big-hearted bikers are heading to Millport in September to lay a Remembrance wreath as part of a nationwide tour.
The Widow Sons Scotland bikers will lay wreaths at 31 monuments across Scotland as part of a fundraising effort to raise £60,000 for Poppyscotland, whilst also commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War.
Widows Sons Scotland is a motorcycle association in Scotland whose members are Freemasons.
They will commence their tour of the country at the City Chambers, Edinburgh on Saturday August 4 at 1pm. 
Each stop will also include a family fun event in which members of the various local communities are encouraged to participate.
The bikers are heading to Millport on 8 September with the bikers aiming to raise £60,000 for Poppyscotland on their travels. The money raised has the potential to provide tailored support and funding to hundreds of veterans in need.
Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “This is a terrific gesture from the Grand Lodge of Scotland and their motorcycle association Widows Sons Scotland, and one that is very much appreciated.
“This sum of money could help fund a specialised employment service so that disabled veterans can get support to find suitable, sustainable employment, or allow us to undertake major home adaptations, enabling a seriously disabled veteran to remain in the comfort and safety of their own home.
“These services will make a real difference to the lives of the Armed Forces community.”
Charles Iain Robert Wolrige Gordon, Grand Master Mason of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, said: “We are tremendously proud to be raising money for Poppyscotland by the Widows Sons Scotland touring the country. It is an opportunity to honour both the invaluable contribution of our Armed Forces and the bravery of our veterans and serving men and women. We are delighted to contribute to an excellent charity to facilitate its much-needed work.
“It’s also a fun day out for local communities to get involved in, while contributing to a worthy cause.”
The group will visit cenotaphs and other memorials over the following eight weekends, before finishing up in Dumbarton on September 22. 
Millport has a strong freemasonry history with its local masonic group celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2016.
