A few months back the Youth Club at St McArtin's Cathedral in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland undertook a sponsored stay awake to raise funds for our work with trafficked children. My brother Willie, who is a congregation member, is my link there and in response to an excellent £1,120 raised on the night I offered to have my girls make a mosaic of gratitude. I chose as the subject the Celtic statues on White Island on Lough Erne and former circus girl Manju really brought those old statues to life. Now the mosaic will go on display in the Parish Hall at the Cathedral and bear testimony to the gratitude of young people on the other side of the world. Well worth staying up for.
