This group is part of the National Pilgrimage Trust (HCPT) which takes children and adults with disabilities or special needs to Lourdes each year in the week after Easter. All helpers pay their own way, but fund raising events are organised to pay for the children who are taken. Usually there is an annual 'high tea' event, and a Parish collection towards the children's fares.
