£115raised of £300 target by 8 supporters

Weʼre raising £300 to help fund our travel to Lourdes this year.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Every year people from the Dioceses of Hexham and Newcastle make their way to lourdes for their annual pilgrimage. Without the support of an amazing team of doctors, nurses and helpers, they would be unable to do so, and this is all done on a voluntary basis. me and Vicki have met lots of people and made friends for life on previous trips, and we would love to go this year, however without fundraising this won’t be possible. Nurses and helpers are desperately needed, so even the smallest of donations will be greatly appreciated and thankfully received.

We travel on the Jumbulance, which is a coach equipped with stretchers and facilities allowing us to bring pilgrims who are unable to fly, which means they can make the yearly trip and continue to practice their faith in the beautiful place that is Lourdes.

So please be generous and we promise our trip will be well documented so you can see what the funding will allow us to do!
