THE NEW BEACON, SEVENOAKS
On 10 March, Ruth Marcus visited The New Beacon, and led the morning assembly for Middle and Senior School boys. She spoke at some length about the charity (Alex's Medical and Education Clinic in Africa) that she had founded in memory of her son who died in 2006, aged 23. Alex had been a doctor in the British Army, and he had cared about and worked with the people in Kenya. As his mother, Ruth had wanted to preserve his memory by continuing his work in Africa.
Everyone was tremendously moved by Ruthie's story and her selfless work in wanting to help others. The boys and staff at The New Beacon have previously supported AMECA, and will continue to do so.
