A group of fundraisers have transformed a run-down Courtyard area at The Beacon, Cleethorpes into a beautiful outdoor seating area with a gazebo, benches, hanging baskets and flowers.

The Friends of The Beacon - Jean Smith, Lisa Traquair, Sharon Cantwell, Shirley Kimpson and Jean Harris – who all work at The Beacon, fundraise to pay for activities and enhance the experience of service users. In the past the group has funded entertainment such as singers for the service users and this is the first time they have purchased equipment for people to enjoy.

Work on the Courtyard started in April to transform it into an area service users and their families can enjoy in the warmer weather and it is proving popular.

Donations to the Friends of The Beacon come from service users – current and past, as well as their friends and families and also other staff working at The Beacon. Fundraising activities also take place throughout the year and this year The Beacon Christmas Fayre - one of the key fundraising events of the year will take place on Saturday 10th December.
