Fr Tom Treherne presented a cheque for £200 Many of us have cars and, although we might complain sometimes,
public transport is remarkably good.

If we want to go somewhere there is usually the means to do so.
Not so for the many children with learning and other disabilities in

Profound Education – if only they could get there.

How about showing our gratitude for the transport we so often
take for granted. How? By putting aside 1p (or 2 or 5 …) per mile we
travel, whether by our own car or by public transport, to give to the
Wheels of Mercy project.

If we feel the need to give something up, what about leaving the
car at home and instead walking or using public transport – and
donate the cost of the petrol saved?

Not only will disabled children in Pakistan benefit but this could
make us healthier and even reduce global warming; well at least a
little bit!

A marriage of ministers

Luke and Katy were appointed by the Salvation
Army to the Hastings team ministry in Ore and in
town at St Andrew’s Square.

They work with Captain Marian Parker to run
these two sites, as well as various activities on the
Down’s Farm estate.

They lead the congregations on Sunday and
head up some of the mid-week programmes.
Their ministry is seen as being ‘out there’ with the
people.

So much of it is community based: toddlers,
children’s and youth clubs; young parents and
older folk, as well as prayer and Bible study.

The St Andrew’s Square hall is used for

How they met
Katy and Luke first met at a Salvation Army
summer camp in 2006. Luke takes up the story.

‘Katy was in the Church of England and I was in
the Salvation Army. Katy’s brother-in-law was on
the staff of the camp and she was asked to help
out as a nurse. I was a student.

‘I told Katy early on when we were going out
that I felt God was calling me to leadership in the
Salvation Army. So that was always clear from the
start.

‘Katy was always very supportive of that, but
eventually she felt that it was something God was

Twinning and tracking

y Dr John Geater: The importance of being able to use a safe
toilet was brought home to me while visiting a
ebullient rural area of Africa.
Photo by John Hawkins
The picture shows the type of toilet we were
using. We were glad to do so, as the alternative
might be to go out to an open exposed space.

Safer enclosed
We are not talking about a flushing toilet
similar to our own but just having a deeper
hole. This lessens the risk of disease, and the
all-important walls and a door make it a safer
place to visit.

Teams work alongside communities to
promote good hygiene and improve access to
decent loos and clean water. When a toilet has
been built, a photo is taken and its longitude
and latitude co-ordinates are sent to the
charity’s headquarters.

You are sent a framed certificate of the
toilet yours has been twinned with, along with
its GPS co-ordinates. So you can look it up on
Google Maps.

So far we have raised money at Sussex Coast
College to twin 12 toilets – £60 has to be
raised for each toilet twinned.

was to twin four toilets in the first term of this

academic year. I am thrilled that by the Christmas

This all started through me seeing a framed

the response. As well as church and other groups
