Many thanks to our supporters!

Getting a group of helpers and children to Lourdes every Easter takes a lot of dedication and hard work. At a cost of £750 per sponsored child, it also takes a lot of money, and fundraising is a year long commitment for the group leaders and helpers of Group 101.

Fortunately we have some fantastic supporters who help us to give the children the experience of a lifetime. The following people and organisations have generously and kindly made donations to Group 101 recently.

Tickhill Lions
Doncaster Golf Club
Emily and Paul Hobson
Matt Cusack
Ben Hester
Mrs. Waddington
St. Paul's parish
Mrs. P. Pagett
Mr. A. Stiegler

Thanks to you all.
