Schoolboy star Vincentian volunteers

A CATHOLIC choirboy IS Starring in a Hollywood epic. Ben Jeffrey, a 14-year-old student from Richard Challoner School in New Malden, has just returned from South Africa where he made an adventure film The Ghost Ships of the Kalahari, which opens in December. He plays the son of an English archaeologist (Oliver Tobias) who discovers ships' ancient Chinese treasures. He was allowed time away from school to to complete the film but was accompanied by a tutor. THE YOUNG are too often given a bad press and deserve praise for their willingness to sacrifice themselves and help others, the National Director of the

Vincentian Volunteer Programme said this week.

Sr Kathleen Hogg DC said that the programme, linked to the Catholic Volunteering Network, had already attracted seven volunteers for this year's project and that she looked forward to hearing from more. Volunteers are needed to help in five main areas: the homeless, rootless and unemployed; people dependent on drugs or alcohol; community development and youth ministry; the adult blind, deaf and those with learning difficulties; prisoners and their families.

Vincentian volunteers are young men and women aged 18-30, working directly with the poor in simple, lay communities. For more information contact Sr Kathleen at St Michael's Presbytery, 40 George Leigh Street, Ancoats, Manchester M4 5DG.
