This Is Their Life
This is Their Life
Friday 25 January saw the first fundraising event of the year – the life stories of two very interesting men. First to the floor was ex drug addict Jackie Burke. Since becoming a Christian Jackie has been telling his extreme story to audiences including schoolchildren and prisoners for over twenty years. Such was the moving story Jackie had to tell, one could have heard a pin drop and many in the audience were moved to tears by the heart wrenching words he spoke. As a complete contrast, Raymond Crooks also told how he had come to faith but by singing his life changing story and entertaining the audience in a completely different way.
In response to a luxury draw to raise money for two charities of their choice, £370 was raised to support Jackie’s choice – “Compassion” and Raymond’s choice “Friends in Action.” In addition £700 was raised for the Building Fund.
We are indebted to Pauline Harrison who single-handedly provided a delicious meal.
