It has been a wonderful day! It started with a cup of tea at my door kindly provided by Raquel, my new mum for a few days. We have all been welcomed into people’s homes in Basildon whilst we’re in London and me and Jess couldn’t ask for a better host!
I started the ‘working’ day playing splat, duck duck goose, wink murder and switch, to name a few games, with St Vincent’s Primary School. When they finally got into the cathedral, after much crowd control, they were the ones telling me about Don Bosco. They even knew about RUAH!
For the remainder of the day, I was placed at the departure stand and it has rejuvinated me when I was beginning to flag. Having people tell me how much they enjoyed the experience, how inspiring ‘it’ all is and asking how they can become involved filled me with a sense of pride in all the people that have made this happen. All the hours it took to organise have paid off. Visitors love what has been created and love the passion and enthusiasm that is on show. I think the aim of spreading the Salesian word has well and truly been accomplished.
