Group 718 was founded in 2008 by Jo Silver, Des Kelly and David Silver, all former members of HCPT Group 13. The group draws young helpers from the 6th Form of St John Payne RC School in Chelmsford, Essex. Each year we take 12 young people (chosen by the school from up to 50 applicants) to Lourdes at Easter to work in pairs in children’s groups from our region. Many of them return to Lourdes in those groups.
