ABOUT 500 people from all over the world made a pilgrimage to a farm this week for an annual Christian summer family camp.

The Hollybush Christian Fellowship, based near South Otterington, between Northallerton and Thirsk, runs the camp every year.

On offer is a programme of serious discussion and debate provoked by a series of guest speakers, including Bill Wilson, founder of New York-based Metro Ministries, which reaches 20,000 people every week and pastor Richard Taylor, who presents on BBC television and radio.

The fellowship was founded in 1968 with the aim of providing a place for people who need refreshing, healing and deliverance.
