Newcastle Scholarships

Friday, April 10th, 2015

This academic year 2014-5 has seen the Foundation provide two more scholarships to female students at the Chemical Engineering faculty of Newcastle University. This project is going from strength to strength and we now have awarded 5 scholarships over the first three years of the Foundation’s involvement. Our first scholars have now graduated and it is hugely rewarding to see how much benefit we can provide through our support.

After a successful summer party at Manley Mere the second half of 2014 saw further fund raising notably for Kevin Savage’s 50th birthday.

Leavers’ Mass

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Once again the Leavers’ Mass in July for the outgoing year 6 children was an emotional day for young and old. The lavender plants were beautfifully prepared by Diddibox Flowers and Joe Tully Jnr. helped our Joseph to present them to each of the 57 children. We hope this is a tradition we can keep going for years to come.
