AN article in Together Again promoting a reunion sparked one pupil from a separate yeargroup to ask for help in contacting his old schoolpals.
Denise Morrison, nee McKie, appeared in the Mail appealing for anyone who attended English Martyrs School when it first opened, in 1973, to attend a school reunion.
The Mail reported yesterday that the night, held at Hartlepool Catholic Club, raised £240, to be split between the town branch of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and St Cuthbert’s Care Home, which provides the 5p Bus that travels around the region, including Hartlepool, selling clothing and essential items for just 5p each.
But Denise added: “A man called Phil Benphan got in touch with me after he saw my appeal in the paper.
“He went to St Peter’s School but left the year English Martyrs opened, and he would like anybody who remembers him to get in touch. He is working in Portugal now.”
English Martyrs was formed when the St Bede’s Boys Secondary Modern, St Anne’s Girls Secondary Modern, St Peter’s Mixed Secondary Modern, St Francis Grammar School and St Joseph’s Convent schools amalgamated.
Anyone who remembers Peter can call Denise on 07904876223.
