Kevan Jones, Member of Parliament for North Durham, will be calling in to St. Peters Court in Sacriston on Friday morning (20 December) to make a donation towards their Christmas celebrations.

St Peters Court is a complex of sixteen apartments specifically for ex-service personnel run by the charity Shaid, and offers a variety of support to help them adapt to life after they leave the forces. More information can be found at

Mr. Jones said, “I am very pleased to be able to, in a small way, show my support for this excellent facility in my constituency. I have visited St Peters Court many times before and am always impressed by what goes on here, so I am more than happy to offer a donation to help them fund their celebrations on Christmas Day.”
