Imagine you have no home.
Imagine having to carry all your belongings with you wherever you go.
Imagine walking around all the time with no-where to get new socks, shoes that fit or the opportunity to cut your toe nails.
Imagine having nowhere for your post to be delivered.
Imagine being looked down on because your clothes are dirty and you have not been able to have a hair cut.
Imagine how you would feel if you had not been able to get a shower for a few days. Imagine not being able to sit in front of a computer or play games with your friends.
Imagine not having a fridge or a cupboard to go and help yourself to something to eat.
Imagine having no kettle to make tea and coffee the way you like it.
The Fundraising Concert organised by Walsgrave Baptist Church raised £555 for the work of the Jesus Centre which provides services that seek to meet all the needs described above and provide the friendship and support to make a difference for people’s lives.
I attached some pictures from the night.
We were magnificently entertained throughout the evening. Firstly, Crosspoints Community Choir gave us some amazing renditions of new versions of Christmas carols. We then had the very funny and talented magician Fletcher Ransberry with an armful of tricks (literally!). Finally, Rob Halligan, a famous singer/songwriter brought us a range of his songs peppered with stories and anecdotes. During the buffet supper, there was a chance to try to win the donated prizes through a raffle and roll a coin and buy the Charity Cards made from artwork from the Art Group at the Jesus Centre.
Everyone agreed it had been an excellent event – thanks to everyone who took part, came along or supported in the background. What an amazing team!
