To Group 710, Martin Hutchinson from Daddy Hutch, Celebrating 20 years of travelling to Lourdes! I met a young girl who had a dream. To do the normal things in life, have a good education, get married, have a home and have a child. But life gave her an added disadvantage because she was disabled. That young girl was Sandra. When she was 17 Sandra came to Lourdes. The start of an amazing journey. By the time Sandra was 21 she had become a Catholic, got married and was expecting our baby. That baby was to be called Martin (Baby Hutch). Considering all the difficulties life put in Sandra's way, Martin was a Lourdes miracle. At 9, Martin made his first trip to Lourdes with Group 101 thanks to Ellen and that started his journey with HCPT and Lourdes. Even when we did not travel to Lourdes with HCPT as a family we were involved in the fundraising. Martin travelled to Lourdes many times with his life-long friend and adopted sister, Amy. As he has grown his own experience of what he can bring to the Lourdes experience has grown. Martin started his own group 8 years ago and his aim for his group is to be a foundation from which more groups can bring more and more people to the Lourdes experience. With a total of 20 pilgrimages to Lourdes is just the beginning. Roll on the next 20 and more. Congratulations and well done Son! We both love you very much.
To Group 710, Baby Hutch - Happy 20th Anniversary Martin! We are super lucky to have a true Lourdes miracle as a group leader. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for 710. All our love, your 710 girls xxx
