Gift day update
So far the total money received for the gift day is just under $130,000! We are delighted with the generosity of the church which has enabled us to start blessing those around us. Recently Mike Irving and Hew Nunn visited Fisher Road School and had the privilege of handing over a cheque for $10,000.
It was a total surprise as the school had no idea how much they would be receiving. Ruth Rogers (pictured right), the Deputy principle who received the check commented that she did not know if we were giving $20 dollars or $100. As you can imagine, she was blown away when she saw the total.
Here is an email which she address to Grace City Church community expressing heartfelt thanks for your generosity.
"Thanks you so much on behalf of Fisher Road School for your very generous donation of $10,000 towards the work that goes on at our special school.
We could not have anticipated such a generous donation, and it has presented us with an opportunity to buy one or perhaps two substantial pieces of equipment to enrich our playgrounds, which will give many years of enjoyment to our special needs children.
Please give our heartfelt thanks to the the whole Church community who gave so generously to our school, and I plan to take photographs when the equipment is installed so that you can see the pleasure your generosity has given to our children"
Over the coming weeks we will be able to continue to bless other local organisations so thank you again for your generous giving.
