On Monday 13th June, the Blackwood Church of Christ engaged in a wonderful act of generosity, when the entire proceeds of a recent sausage sizzle/ cake stall were presented to the Bike Shed at Blackwood Uniting Church (the church on the roundabout).
“The generosity shown by the Church of Christ to us is fantastic,” says Bike Shed spokesperson Peter Jones. “It is only because of the gifts we receive from the wider community that we are able to continue the work we do. The Bike Shed has been in operation for about 25 years – 12 months in our current location – providing bikes for the various refugee groups, disadvantaged members of our society, and people generally in need. It is truly humbling to be given this donation, and simply to say, ‘thank you’ to the Church of Christ, fails to adequately express the deep appreciation we feel.”
