The Father Fonti Pilgrimage Trust wasestablished under the stewardship if the Ascot & Sunningdale Catenian Circle. The objective of the trust was to send sick and needy children to Lourdes. By early 2012, the trust had raised over £100,000.
Each year, funds are raised through appeals in local churches and a range of events are held. One event was a charity dinner, with the guest of honour being Ann Widdecome MP, former cabinet member and now author.
Lady Sarah Clutton, The Arundel and Brighton Pilgrimage co-ordinator wrote, “ It is amazing to think how many children have benefited from the Pilgrimage, which is due to your generosity. I am sure I write also on behalf of all the families of the children you have sponsored to say a huge thank you”.
