JUMPING AT NEW OPPORTUNITIES

Bens been journeying with one young man for a good couple of years now. Pre-covid they were catching up every week or so to talk through stuff happening at home, school and life in general. Last year he came along to the youth camp.  This year, he loved participating in Street Eats. When we asked him […]
