One Bright Week 2015

One Bright Week 2015 was held 12th - 19th June in four different areas across Telford.

Many volunteered or got involved from launch to finale. Some 1,200 individual, meaningful contacts were made during the week - including some who were spoken to on more than one occasion. This doesn't include the 1100 who attended the secondary school seminars and assemblies - Tom Elliott - a Christian comedian/magician went into four secondary schools.
The volunteers working on OBW gave 1,477 hours of service to the town, its people and their Lord Jesus.
A team from Cambridge Youth With A Mission (YWAM) were around all week and made a huge difference wherever they went bringing God's heart, love and word to many.
