President of Warrington Rotary Club, George Wilkinson, along with the Rotary members have taken the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation as their charity for 2018/19 with the aim to raise £3000 to bring back the Tim Parry Scholarship that was the Foundations very first programme back in 1995. George & Pam Wilkinson are walking the 180 mile Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from Cardigan to Amroth, 15 days walking from 3rd to 17th September 2018 to raise funds towards a Leadership Development Project as organised by Warrington Rotary in partnership with the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation. The Peace Foundation began its work as a living memorial to the two boys killed 25 years ago in the Warrington bombing with the aim to build connections between young people who might help lead us out of a troubled past. This project will bring together young people from Warrington and Northern & Southern Ireland and give them the skills to be in control of their emotions, think differently and behave with a conscience. They will understand the factors that contribute to conflict, how to disconnect with conflict and how to make positive connections with others. The young people will develop the ability to open a dialogue within and across communities. In January this year, the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation launched its UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT campaign to mark the 25th Anniversary of the IRA bombing in Warrington, which tragically claimed the lives of 12-year-old Tim Parry and 3-year-old Johnathan Ball. Speaking at Tim’s funeral, Colin said ‘If my son becomes a symbol for peace and gives everyone a new sense of hope after so much tragedy, then that will be Tim’s unique achievement’. The Foundation, which was established and named in memory of Tim and Johnathan, has become the leading UK provider of support to victims of terrorism and to young people and communities whose lives are affected by extremism and conflict. Collectively, the lives of all these people have been improved through the support programmes we have developed by using the knowledge and expertise we have gained over the years.   Kate Deakin, Relationship Manager said "This is a great, yet extremely challenging fundraising event and we wish George & Pam the very best wishes completing this on our behalf. It is very kind of George, Pam, and all the members of the Rotary to give up their precious time in order to help raise funds for the Peace Foundation and I just hope they know how grateful we all are."

She came to give continuity to the theology course with the Youth with a Mission. After a period, Vicky’s invitation to be the Head Teacher of a missionary school in West London came through, which she stayed for the next 10 years. Her work with the Missionary school ended in 2008 so Vicky started to attend the Church of England. Once again, she felt that God was calling her to start something new. In July 2017, Vicky was ordained at St Paul’s Cathedral as the first Afro-Colombian Priest. That was a moment of much joy and honour. Back in 1990 Vicky graduated becoming Doctor in Bacteriology. After that, Vicky went to the Amazon Forest as a volunteer working with Youth with a Mission until 1996. In January 2015, the consul of Colombia invited Vicky to meet with the Colombian group of women working in pro of the peace in Colombia, Truth Memory and Reconciliation Commission of Colombian Women in the Diaspora. That was a very emotional moment for Vicky for she knew that was a massive door opening for her, somehow getting in touch with her roots again would give Vicky the opportunity to try to forgive; maybe forget the painful past lived in her beloved Colombia.

Margaret has just returned from Colombia, where she shared the Northern...
