About Us

Who We Are

We are the Southampton based family group from HCPT The Pilgrimage Trust who take sick, disabled and disadvantaged children on pilgrimage - holiday to Lourdes in France every Easter.  Over the years, more than 60 children have travelled with our group.


Group 170 was formed in 2008 and travelled for the first time in 2009. Since then we have built up a strong team of helpers and some wonderful supporters who help us to raise money, help us out with the practical aspects of preparing for Lourdes, refer children to us and pray for our safety and good times whilst in Lourdes!
