The rewards of volunteering
A former student was back at Worth this week to encourage current pupils to go on a pilgrimage to Lourdes with the Order of Malta Volunteers.
Kate Hamilton, who left Worth in 2013, is now a Lourdes volunteer co-ordinator for OMV and she spoke in assembly on Monday about her own wonderful and transformative experiences of taking part in the annual pilgrimage.
The OMV Lourdes pilgrimage offers young people the opportunity to help care for hospital pilgrims, most of whom require significant assistance in their day-to-day lives, to live in community and develop new friendships. Anyone aged 17 and over can apply from April. For more information go to https://www.omv.org.uk/what-we-do/lourdes/
