Fishing club donations in Rob’s memory

FAMILY and friends of Mexborough triple death crash victim Robert Tepper have donated hundreds of pounds to the fishing club where he was a member.

The 17-year-old had been a member of the Ferryboat Junior Fishing Club since he was 11, and had fished in Scotland and Holland. He died alongside his girlfriend Lauren Birkett and Jonathan Scott when the car they were travelling in crashed on December 27.

Mourners at Robert’s funeral donated a total of £815 to the fishing club which he loved. Club leaders John Tingle and Terry Galvin described him as a “terrific lad” and thanked his friends and family for their donations.

WENTWORTH and Dearne MP John Healey has welcomed news that Wath Trinity Methodist Church has received a lottery grant of £10,000.

Church members will use the money from the Big Lottery Fund to refurbish the church hall.

Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey welcomed the move and said: “This grant, and the church’s own fundraising, will mean a much-improved church hall which will be easier for disabled and older people to use.”

A COFFEE morning will be held at the Dearne Valley Care Home in Goldthorpe on Thursday, February 3.

Members of the public are invited to attend between 10am and noon.
