Gabriel is one of the most active members of our congregation at St Mary Magdalene's who is a huge inspiration to us, both in his whole attitude to life and in his joyful commitment to faith and our church family. We are thrilled to have another opportunity to support Gabe and his family. This is not our only chance though, because soon Gabe will be undertaking a sponsored swim. Do keep an eye out for that, too.
Gabe's dream to walk is coming true - thanks to the support of many people. Finally, after fighting for 5 years, Gabriel was accepted for life-changing SDR surgery in Nottingham last summer. We need to continue fundraising for him for his physio at SDR Wales with Mark & Laura to get him walking.
Some of you will have seen Gabe practising his walking at church (where he has also been leading the prayers and Bible readings).
Do go to his JustGiving page here, which will give more of his story, and enable you to donate.
