Axminster Catenians support young volunteer

Bethany is given �400 towards her trip to India in July to help build low cost homes

AXMINSTER Catenians are helping to fund a teenager’s voluntary work overseas.

President Peter Westoby presented 18-year-old Bethany Hyde with a cheque for �400 during a ceremony at St Catherine’s Church, Bridport.

The money will help her meet the costs of a trip to southern India in July when she will work with other young people to build low cost homes.

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.
