The South West Durham REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) Association had the pleasure of donating to two very worthwhile local charities recently.
This year’s chosen charities were the North East Autism Society from Newton Aycliffe and the PSP Association from South Tees Hospital.
The money was raised by members of the REME association from sponsored events and various raffles held throughout the year.
The cheques were presented at the Aycliffe Scout Hall, which is where the REME association meets on the last Wednesday of the month.
The representatives of each charity can been seen in the group photograph:

Karen Ferguson, Head Teacher at Aycliffe School said; “We are extremely grateful to Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Association for their support, their kind donation will benefit our students greatly.”
Tony Stokeld one of our members nominated the PSP Association (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) and Zenita Cowan from South Tees accepted the cheque on their behalf.
