James Hyland: Easter Pride of Green Pastures
jameshprideofgp 2015

*drum roll please*

We are pleased to announce James Hyland from Handcrafted, Durham is our
Easter Pride of Green Pastures!

James struggled with a life of drugs and crime and ended up in a homeless hostel.
In October 2014 he was referred to Handcrafted and started to engage with
the carpentry workshop. In January James was part of a renovation team who modernised
a Green Pastures property and made it suitable for living in. James now lives in the very
house he renovated, sleeping in a bed he made himself in the workshop.

Life is really changing for James, he's regained contact with his children. He has been
making toy boxes for them in the Handcrafted workshop. James has joined the Connect
Group at church and was baptised in November. James has donated his prize money
to a missions trip to Norway. 

James says, 'I am thrilled to be in my new home, to have contact with my kids
and to be a part of Kings church'

James is using his prize money towards his church mission trip, you can sponsor him here.
