14 July 2018 - Another red hot Golf Day
The 3rd annual Ron Tailford NEPAC Golf Day took place in glorious sunshine on Friday 15th June at Prudhoe Golf Club. It was a brilliant day and everyone enjoyed themselves. The silent auction and raffle prizes were fantastic and a total of just over £10000 was raised, of which £7307 was able to be donated to NEPAC. Thanks are due to Tony Tailford and his team for again organising this event, and to all golfers who took part and helped raise this wonderful sum of money. Thanks too to all sponsors and others who donated gifts, and to Prudhoe Golf Club for hosting the event.

10 April 2017 - WOW what a concert!!
The 300 or so who attended this 22nd Suzanne Manuell concert last Saturday night in the Civic Centre, Newcastle were treated to a wonderful evening of music, which ended with a standing ovation. Suzanne (soprano) and Stephen Aviss (tenor) were in fine voice and performed a lovely variety of solos and duets, accompanied as always by Anthony Seddon, and pianist Victoria Robinson showed her talent with a dazzling display of piano playing. Although advertised as the last concert, this may now not be the case so please watch this space!

16 March 2017 - New NEPAC website now online
For some time now, our website has been out of date and in need of a redesign. Following our call for help in our recent Newsletter, the grandson of one of our loyal supporters, Sam Nockels, came forward to offer his help. Sam is a student at Newcastle University and we are most grateful to him for his help in redesigning the new website which is now online. Many thanks, Sam.
