Steve Collis


It was with great sadness that we learned of Steve's death last night, following a long illness.

Steve first travelled to Lourdes as a sponsored child with 101 and then as a helper. He loved Group 101 and he loved travelling to Lourdes. His sessions were always very prayerful and reflective and he contributed greatly to the music in the group.

He will be missed by everyone in Group 101 and our thoughts and prayers are with Mary and the rest of Steve's family.

Former helper makes donation to 101

Former Group 101 helper Matthew Cusack has donated £150 to the group through the just giving link on this website. This will go along way to helping a child have the holiday of a lifetime.

Many thanks to Matt from every member of Group 101. We will light a candle for you at the grotto.
