JAMES RUNS THE LONDON MARATHON

JAMES, OUR URC MINISTER,

HAS RUN THE LONDON MARATHON!


On Sunday 24th April James ran the London Marathon. He was running in memory of Ashley Doughty, a young man from Lillington Free Church who died on Easter Day 2014 (20th April) after being treated over several months for a brain tumour.

The charity Cancer and Leukaemia in Children named after the late Sir Malcolm Sargent. (CLIC Sargent) supported Ashley throughout his illness and James is raising money to support this charity and its important work.

The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration

 

THE QUEEN’S 90TH BIRTHDAY PARTY

 

The Celebration Tea Party to mark Her Majesty’s 90th birthday. was held at 3.00pm on Saturday April 23rd (just 2 days after Queen Elizabeth II’s actual birthday), and, incidentally, the supposed date of William Shakespeare’s birth and the date of his death in 1616.

We watched an excellent film about Her Majesty, sang the National Anthem; had an elegant afternoon tea and each guest received a special commemorative book of the Queen’s life to mark this occasion.

A letter sending loyal greetings and birthday congratulations has been sent to Her Majesty from Radford Road Church.

Some of the guests wore red, white and blue clothing and here are pictures of some of our guests:
