The Henry Surtees Foundation Christmas Newsletter 2015 – Message from John Surtees:  First of all let me wish everyone a safe and peaceful Christmas and New Year: 2015 has seen its ups and downs however everyone at the HSF deserves a pat on the back for the sterling work achieved during this very busy year raising not just funds, but awareness too! My sincere thanks also to the faithful sponsors and supporters as without them we would not be able to continue our work in helping those who have suffered head trauma and other serious accidents. 2016 will see another year and another great step forward for the foundation with plans afoot to… (watch this space!). In the meantime here are some key events already planned: Hever Castle Father’s Day event – 19 June 2016; Henry Surtees Brooklands Team Karting Challenge at Mercedes-Benz World (date to be agreed soon); Henry Surtees Challenge at Buckmore Park 26 October 2016.

 

As you may already be aware, a formal process is underway to see Andrew Bertie (who taught languages here at Worth between 1960 and 1983) be made a Saint, following his work as Grand Master of the Knights of Malta.  The Cause of Beatification is developing very well and is now at the stage of the ‘witness’.  There is a questionnaire available to anybody who thinks they may have information and reports about his time here at Worth that might help the cause.  If you feel you have something to contribute and would like to help then do please email me at worthsociety@worth.org.uk and I’ll pass your details on to the Postulator in Rome.

 

It has been announced that Fr Stephen Ortiger will step down as Chaplain to St Mary’s House at the end of this term and pass the baton to Br David Jarmy.  In Fr Stephen’s words, “I have had a wonderful seven years in St Mary’s, definitely further proof for the existence of a very loving God.  I move on with huge gratitude and lovely memories”.
