HCPT Group 149 is the local group serving the needs of children from St. Albans and the surrounding areas and is run with the full support of the parish church of St. Bartholomew’s.
Every year we work to raise sufficient funds to take up to ten local children to Lourdes in France during the week after Easter.
The children we take come from all walks of life and have a huge variety of needs, be they social, physical, emotional, economic or simply a combination of any of these.
The very simple motto of the charity and of our group is that ‘no one gets left behind.’
The children’s travel costs and needs are covered entirely by the group and as such the fundraising needs of the group year-on-year are significant, the estimated cost of taking a child to Lourdes is around £800.
Please take some time to look around our website and keep yourself posted on what we are all getting up to, if you would like to show your support for the group by making a donation please follow this link or by clicking DONATE above.
