Rayleigh Parish has its own HCPT group which travels to Lourdes at Easter with disabled and disadvantaged children.   Around 1,000 children from the UK travel to Lourdes, as well as groups from Ireland, Belgium, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, USA and the West Indies. Including helpers, nurses, doctors and chaplains there are around 5,000 taking part in the pilgrimage. We are looking to expand our group and need more adult helpers to travel with us next Easter as well as a nurse for the group. If you are interested or would like some more information, please contact Sandra Spooner (group Deputy) by email at spoonersandra@hotmail.com.
