Catenians present Isobel “Izzy” Worrall with £500 towards her trip to the Solomon Islands.
A young Dorset woman has received a welcome cash boost to help fund an aid mission to the South Pacific.
Isobel “Izzy” Worrall received £500 from the Axminster Catenians bursary fund to help finance a trip to the Diocese of Auki in the Solomon Islands.
This is a relatively new catholic community in a very remote location, and Izzy will have to travel by plane, via Australia, and finally by a four-hour boat journey to reach the location. She will undertake three months’ teaching and liturgical advice to schools and parishes in the diocese.
