In January, Kirsten - a young parishioner from Most Holy Redeemer, Billericay decided to undertake a nail-painting challenge and has pledged to raise funds for us by painting 35 sets of nails throughout 2019. She has already made a start among her friends at Youth Club and we would like to thank her for doing this for us.
In February, Jon Robinson – Year 7 Head and teacher at St Bonaventure’s High School School, Forest Gate climbed to heights of 5894m to the summit of Uhuru Peak on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise funds for us.
This is an amazing feat of endurance and we would like to say a heartfelt 'thank you' to Jon from all of the team.
