At Brigade Council on Saturday 22nd September 2012 the Brigade Secretary Martin Lambourne announced the recipients of the most improved attendance in a company, for those companies over 20 members and also under 20 members.
The recipient of the £2,000 donation for a company over 20 members goes to St Aidan's in Framwell Gate Moor with an increase of membership of 53% in the last 12 months.
St Partrick's Ballymena and Christ the Saviour Digmoor were both awarded £250 as close runner's up.
The company awarded £1,500 for the under 20 member category goes to St Saviour's, Shotton Colliery with an increase of 40% membership.
These award's would not have been available without the kind donation from an anonymous generous benefactor.
