Chaplaincy Visitor - Dr. Mark Mantey from Ahokotorum, Ghana

On Friday 28th September, Dr Mark Mantey, the Director of the Padre Pio Rehabilitation Centre for Leprosy suffers, in Ghana, came to speak to Business Studies students about his work.

He spoke passionately about his personal experience and history with the Centre that he now directs on behalf of the local community. Historically, Christ the King College through the leadership of the then Chaplain, Fr Doug Bull, raised significant funds to support the building of a ‘Christ the King’ Education Building on the campus.

Today, many children and young people have benefited from the services that the Ghana centre provides. It is hoped that further links will be developed with our current students and the Centre through further fundraising and possible student visits to the site. Dr Mark Mantey’s presentation was very well received, leading to several of the Business studies groups wishing to undertake charity fundraising on their behalf.
