A Grant-Making Trust for Young Christian Women from the North East of England

Fund Stories

When the pilgrimage, the course or the experience is over, we ask fund holders to reflect back on what they have lived and learned and write and tell us about it. More than anything else it is these accounts which show us the value of the Fund’s work. The Reports which follow are selected to show the diversity of experiences we fund.

Our 43rd Visit  

For many years now we have been funding young women going to Lourdes with the De La Salle Youth Group. Many of them use the pilgrimage as their residential experience for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.
