Catholics aid blind Vicar

THE Rev. Andrew Scott, Anglican Vicar of St. Mary's, Halton, near Runcorn, Ches., who was left blind by a recent illness, has been invited by local Catholics to join an

eight-day pilgrimage to Lourdes. The Catholics, from the parish of St. Edwards, Runcorn, are now raising the £40 needed for his fare.

Mr. Scott. who is starting to learn Braille and who uses atape-recorder to help him memorise his sermons, said : "I could hardly believe this marvellous gesture. It came right out of the blue."

Said Mr. Eric Hayard, St. Edward's pilgrims fund organiser : "There could not be a more deserving case than Mr. Scott. We all admire how well he is tackling his handicap. He does not want pity or sympathy and we are not giving him any. We are giving him practical assistance."
