The Sunflower Club that runs this project helping teenage orphans prepare for adult life is just one of the St Gregory's Foundation projects that we will be taking visitors to see later this year.
Between 26th August and 6th September, we will be visiting St Petersburg and towns and villages further north in Karelia. We will meet our Russian colleagues leading inspirational organisations, and some of the people that they help. We will also visit places of stunning architectoral or natural beauty, including the Hermitage, the island of Kizhi famous for its wooden cathedral (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
A member of our 2009 trip said of the experience:
'It was one of the most memorable times of my life. We saw some wonderful sights, both man-made and natural. We met wonderful people doing amazing work and we saw the places they had to work in. The difference the charity makes is awe-inspiring.’
You can find out full details from our website (see trip details link). Sadly, the trip is only open to UK residents. If you are interested in joining us, do not delay. The group is limited to twenty five people.
