ACROSS
Description

ACROSS is a recognised charity which provides pilgrimages by Jumbulance for sick and disabled persons to the Christian pilgrimage centre in Lourdes, SW France.

It can also provide transport to anywhere in Central Europe for groups of 24 persons who arrange their own holiday accommodation.

Individuals are welcome to apply for pilgrimages and whilst carers are welcome and needed, are not necessary as volunteer carers, nurses and doctors apply separately. The Jumbulance is a luxury road vehicle fitted with beds and medical equipment to provide long distance travel in safety and comfort.
Accommodation in Lourdes is at a specially selected hotel where they have installed hospital beds, hoists, commodes etc.
ACROSS is unable to accept individual applications to locations other than Lourdes and priority is always given to those most seriously ill or most severely disabled.
