"HCPT is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I think everyone should experience"
Keep in touch with HCPT Manchester Region, via our website and our most popular online platforms
Every year, we have children who, for example, dream of being Ryan Giggs and running down the wing for Manchester United, or dream of being a dancer. All the children we meet have dreams and ambitions just like any other child. Each year, a group of volunteers from HCPT Manchester Region take children and young people, with a variety of health needs, backgrounds and faiths, for a holiday of a lifetime to a town of Lourdes, in the south of France.
All this fun, laughter and caring depends on one major factor - money. HCPT Manchester Region aims to take between 30 and 40 children to Lourdes every Easter. The helpers who go are all volunteers and all pay for themselves, leaving a target of roughly £50,000, every penny of which helps towards a local young person having a pilgrimage holiday of a lifetime.
Every year, one of the hardest parts of organising this wonderful annual pilgrimage holiday is covering the children's cost. We are always looking for sponsorship of any description that would assist us in raising this sum. From cash donations to raffle prizes, every little helps.
You can help to make these children's dreams come true by helping us in any way that you can. If you are able to donate, we would be so very grateful.
If you can help in any way, please do get in touch. We will put you in contact with the appropriate people. Also have a look at our upcoming fundraising events and how you can raise money, just by shopping online.
If you are looking to volunteer with HCPT Manchester Region, then please do send us your details, and we will be in touch very soon.
