The IHCPT is a charity which takes children (from age 12 upwards) to Lourdes for a week at Easter on a pilgrimage / holiday. It is a fantastic experience for those children, and for the helpers too. I have been involved with them for over 10 years, so if anyone has any questions as to how to get involved or is interested in getting their child put forward, just contact me.
Over the years I have gone on holidays with children who have mild learning disabilities, severe physical disabilities, and everything in between. It gives the parents a break as well for the week ... with just one week caring for those children, I have a tiny glimpse into how hard it is for parents to keep going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - you have my utmost admiration, always.
At the end of the week, when we land at the airport and hand the children back over to their families, it always breaks my heart to say goodbye to them, but also fills me with love to see the joy in those parents / families to have their precious child back with them again.
Anyway, like I said, if anyone ever has questions on it, give me a shout
