This post is the first in what I expect to be a series of video remakes. By redoing projects months or perhaps years later, I visually share my progress as an editor and show what my work can entail.
The plight and desperation faced by some of the families saw Safe Haven not only donate furniture but in case of domestic abuse survivors, completely refurbish their homes and indeed the lives of their beneficiaries.
It sounds an easy pulpit on which to stand doesn’t it? “Yeah, Yeah we’ve heard it all before” the cynical response from the person who on hearing automatically revisits their own past memory (which replays its self uncontrollably by now anyway) knowing that at that time there was no help, it was impossible, it was something they just had to put up with. Not Necessarily! If enough of us will stand together against this Evil in our midst, we would not now be standing under this avalanche of need and desperation.Leigh Murphy
Safe Haven believes that they were/are among the first faith-based charities to respond to the needs of poverty-stricken families, in West Yorkshire.
Through the work of their furniture charity shop, (at the time of making the original video) they were receiving community donations of some 25 tonnes a month of recycled furniture and food parcels. They made their mission to then distribute this to the most vulnerable families.
Safe Haven and the church continue to respond to the people’s needs but it is still not enough. So, please make a special effort to go and check out their web site and support them as they continue to serve the community.
Also, if you do visit their charity furniture shop, in Yeadon, let them know that DerekR is still shouting their corner.
