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.

* Catenians are Catholic men who meet regularly for social activities – often with their families. They are part of an international organisation with over 10,500 members ,who recently celebrated their Centenary . Members of Axminster Catenians are drawn from East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.
