Apostolates

Secret Millionaire

Some of the novices volunteer at St. Chad’s Sanctuary, a place where refugees can come in from the cold. Food, clothes, English lessons and personal support are also available.

Last Thursday a camera crew from Channel 4 came in, ostensibly to film a documentary about an Iranian man who had previously been an asylum seeker. As it turned out, the film crew were from the programme Secret Millionaire. The Iranian man had actually made a fortune in business and wanted to donate money to the Sanctuary. A surprised Sr. Margaret Walsh gladly accepted a donation of £20,000 plus eight computers.

The programme is to be aired in March 2011.
