Staff at Blessed Trinity will help to take a group of children on a pilgrimage to Lourdes next Easter.

Lindsay Bleazard, Paddy Martin, John Kelly and Laura Murray will be part of Handicapped Children's Pilgrimage Trust Group 72 headed up by Chris Hawra.

HCPT Group 72 have been going to Lourdes for many years and the 2018 group comprises of 14 helpers and six children.

Two pupils from Blessed Trinity and Father Brian Kealey, the former priest of Christ the King Parish and Governor at Blessed Trinity, will also be joining the group .

The Burnley Catenians have donated  £640 to help to fund the trip.  The fundraising was led by Burnley Catenian Circle President 2016/17, Michael Jones, who organised a series of activities during his year in office.

"The fundraising that has been done on behalf of Group 72 is a fantastic amount and enables us to continue taking children to Lourdes each year," said Chris Hawra. "The children come from a wide range of backgrounds with varying needs, from the East Lancashire area."
