Talks in York and Catterick

I have just returned to Holy Island after two wonderful days giving talks at both St. Anne’s Church in Catterick, North Yorkshire and the Quaker Meeting House in York. 

I could not have wished for warmer and kinder hospitality from both places. It was so good to return to Catterick and update the members of the church about the situation of children in such crisis in the Holy Land and also to talk about the progress of the charity. I was very happy to have Rev. Mike Dixon with me. Mike was the coordinating Chaplain at Durham Prison for many years and it was he who accepted me into the prison as one of the chaplains 24 years ago. 

After 45 years it was also fantastic to revisit the Meeting House in Friargate, York and to be able to have a talk and discussion about what is happening with the educational and medical care of children in such desperate need. I was delighted to be with my sister at the Meeting House and to see her, now retired, Headmistress who taught her some (many) decades ago. All in all a great time trying to raise an awareness of the situation of children in need. Thank you to all at both Catterick and York.
