HCPT

We provide pilgrimage holidays to Lourdes to change the lives of children and adults

Story

Hello!!

Thanks for visiting my justgiving page.

You may remember a film from a few years ago called 'Run Fat Boy, Run'  Well here is the real life sequel: 'CYCLE FAT BOY, CYCLE'

In a moment of weakness I signed up to cycle 540 miles over 7 days during Holy week 2011. Starting in Dinard in the North West of France I will arrive in Lourdes 540 miles further south on Good Friday. The bike is shiny and new and the training is about to start in earnest. It will certainly be a challenge !!

However it will all be worth it if I manage to raise lots of money for the great charity HCPT -The Pilgrimage Trust.

HCPT takes thousands of children with disabilities or special needs on a pilgrimage holiday to Lourdes in France. The children travel in small family-style groups with experienced volunteer helpers, doctors, nurses and chaplains. The Trust also has a house in the mountains outside Lourdes for people of all ages with disabilities.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
