SVP Goat Bank
St Luke's SVP is "twinned" with St Alphonsa, Uppukunnu, Kerela, India and send some financial support each year. In 2013 they set up a Goat Bank initially benefitting 5 families but as the goats reproduce more families will be able to benefit.
St Luke's UCM was founded on 9th April 1948 Betty Brierley joined in 1952 and was President from 1987 to 2001 when Pat Ellicott took over as President. In 2001 Betty was awarded the Bene Merente from the Pope for services to the Church and the UCM. The UCM supports different charities each year. In 2003 they gave £500 to the Drop in Centre at Salford Cathedral towards an oven. In 2004 they contributed to a Hydrotherapy Pool at St Joseph's retreat Centre at Freshfield where there is a home for the disabled. In 2005 through CAFOD paid for 2 cows and 2 water pumps in Africa.

At the moment Fr. Joseph is trying to provide a special needs teacher in all schools in his area. These children are not given any special tuition and leave school without being able to read or write. Fr. Joseph has to find the money to pay for these teachers.
