Over many years the Warwickshire Installed Masters' Lodge 4538 has had many speakers whose Masonic pedigree has been second to none. At the meeting of the Lodge on 8th June 2017 this pedigree is extended beyond Masonry to a World Class Olympic Champion.
Claire Cashmore, MBE, will be our guest of honour and keynote speaker.
A seasoned Paralympian, Rio 2016 was Claire’s fourth Paralympics and most successful to date. She entered the world stage at only 16 years old, qualifying for Athens and coming home with 2 bronze medals, a bronze at the games in Beijing in 2008, and a further 2 silvers and a bronze in London 2012.
London 2012 saw a big boost in Claire’s profile as she was chosen to be one of the faces of Channel 4’s hugely successful Meet the Superhumans campaign – she was featured on billboards nationwide and in a number of adverts on Channel 4 speaking candidly about her disability.
Claire’s performance in the pool at Rio 2016 was impressive. With experience under her belt, she won silver in the SB8 100m breaststroke and her first gold in the 4 x 100m medley relay.
Claire is a great ambassador for disability sport and regularly gives motivational talks to children and adults.
Our Worshipful Master, W Bro Trevor Sturt, would welcome as many masons from Warwickshire and other provinces as possible, to come along and enjoy what promises to be a very special evening and to help support Claire’s Charity
