Fifty lucky volunteers, who attend megachurch, Jesus House based in Brent, north London, were the special guests at a reception held in their honour at Westminster Palace recently.
Hosted by local MP for Finchley and Golders Green, Mike Freer, the reception was his way to say thank you to Jesus House volunteers for helping to deliver Christmas hampers to residents in his constituency and across Barnet during Christmas season.
MP Mike Freer said, “I am delighted to welcome volunteers from Jesus House to the House of Commons for a thank you reception. The Christmas Hamper initiative helps so many local people, and it is only right that the excellent work of the church and the volunteers is recognised.”
Every year, Jesus House runs a Christmas Lunch on Jesus (CLOJ) project, which sees Jesus House join forces with other churches in the London Borough of Barnet, to deliver food hampers to needy families. Over 300 volunteers take part in this initiative.
Ngozi Molokwu, CLOJ Project Manager said, “As a huge supporter of Christmas Lunch on Jesus, each year Mike Freer effortlessly helps to pack over 1,000 hampers to be delivered to homes of the less privileged over Christmas. The entire CLOJ team and its volunteers were delighted to attend the reception and, on behalf of all of us, we would like to say thank you for all your support.”
