What A Great Weekend!

What an amazing weekend it was for HCPT Doncaster Group 101! The Christmas by Candlelight concert on Saturday evening was a big success and raised £1100 to help take local children on a wonderful holiday to Lourdes.

This was followed on Sunday by a Christmas meal for 101 and over 40 of us had a great meal and sing song in The Turnpike in Bawtry.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the weekend so special, and such a brilliant start to Advent.

A Special Day For Gareth

Yesterday's mass at Trinity University in Leeds for Gareth was sad and emotional but uplifting. It was particularly special to celebrate mass in memory of Gareth in a place where he had spent so much time, as a student and chaplain's assistant. It was great to see so many people who knew Gareth and wanted to take part in the day. Special thanks to Margaret Jones for organising the mass.

Special thanks also to Gareth's wife Lizzie who so generously donated £500 to Group 101.

A Brilliant 101 Weekend!

Last weekend, Group 101 had a fantastic time celebrating and fundraising.

On Sunday, most of 101 travelled to Nottingham to celebrate James' 16th birthday. A fantastic Lourdes style mass was followed by a great party at James' house with lots of his friends and family. The church held a second collection for 101 and fellow pupils of Matthew and Bethan Queally also did some fundraising for the group.

On bank holiday Monday, Group 101 had a tombola stall at the Hawthorn Club summer fair in Cantley. 101 were also the chosen charity to benefit from the proceeds of the fair. Despite poor weather and a slow start, it was a great day and over the weekend a total of £1200 was raised for Group 101!

Many thanks to everyone who contributed and helped to raise funds for us. And special thanks to James for inviting us to share his special birthday celebration. Here are some photos:
