New President Jim Rolleston.

For the Year 2018 - 2019 the president was Chris Burnell and his chosen charity Action for Children raised £2,734.00 .

For the Year 2019 - 2020 Jim Rolleston's chosen charities for the year are detailed below.

 

Catenian Charities for 2019/2020. 
 
During this year it was my aim to choose two charities one that provides national support for the sick to go to Lourdes and a local group who provide support to the young in Salisbury who get into difficulty on a night out in the city. I have provided more details on these valuable charities below: 


 
Society of our Lady of Lourdes 
 
This charity was chosen this year to provide financial support and to promote the Society, which was formed in 1919 to care for the sick on the English National Pilgrimage to Lourdes and exists solely on volunteer support and donations.  The Society concentrates on increasing the opportunities nationally, for the sick to come to Lourdes supported by doctors, nurses and carers, with 24-hour care whilst there. The Society also welcomes able-bodied praying pilgrims who have no special duties but take part in all the services and have the opportunity to mingle with the sick. 
 
Salisbury Street Pastors  
 
The local team are part of a national team first pioneered in 2003, and Street Pastors continues to grow throughout the UK and across the world.  
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches and they care about our community. They are usually on patrol from 10 p.m. - 4 a.m. on a Friday or Saturday night to care for, listen to, and help people who are out on the streets. They are led by a local coordinator and also have support from local churches and community groups in partnership with the police, local council and other statutory agencies. 
These then are my charities for my President’s year and hope that you can support them.
