Every little helps

Members of St George’s Church are finding creative ways to raise money for a new sports facility for local residents on their site in Rogers Road, Dagenham.

The multi-use games area will be available for hire by community organisations, such as youth and disability groups, and will cost in the region of £100,000.

Church member Sony Ejemai, who coaches youth football in Dagenham, is asking guests at his 50th birthday party next month to donate to the project rather than getting him a gift. Other members of the congregation are planning similar fundraising drives.

“Jesus told us to love your neighbour,” says Sony, “and this project is a fantastic way to do that.”
