Old Forester, The Venerable Elwin Cockett (Copeland’s, 1973-77) had some fantastic news to share with us here at Forest.
He is involved in a charity called “Motorbikes for Marsabit”, which purchases motorbikes for parish priests in Northern Kenya, allowing them to cover the huge and difficult terrain that their parishes are spread across.
Thanks to the generosity of Forest families – to the tune of £593.69, raised in the retiring collection from the Commemoration Day Service in Chapel – they have been able to purchase a motorbike.
This latest bike will be the same model, ‘ruggedised’ for the harsh terrain. A very big ‘thank you’ to everyone at Forest for this brilliant effort!Back to all news
