Following a successful application to the Charity Committee of the Richard Henry Holmes Benevolent Fund from the Beacon Hill School in Wallsend to aid their target of £100,000 to replace their aging minibuses, a grant of £1000 was rewarded to the School.

W Bro. Dave Watson PAGDC presented the cheque on behalf of the Province of Northumberland on Friday 16th May 2014 to Mrs. Helen Jones, the Headteacher of the School accompanied by Mrs. Erica Whiteley, the wife of Bro. Richard Whiteley together with Emily, Marcus, Heidi and Ryan, pupils from the School.


W Bro. Dave and his wife, Lesley and Erica then went on a tour of the school. They were most impressed by the excellent facilities and the welcome that they received from the teachers and pupils.

The Headteacher advised us that they have reached £15,000 to date and is confident that they will achieve their goal.
