Sister Alice Runs Marathons!

My name is Alice Onofeta. I started attending New Wine Church from its inception; in fact, I gave my life to the Lord at New Wine Church. It is priceless to be surrounded by such a warm, dependable Church-family, and to be able to share God’s love with our community through charitable projects.

In April 2019, I will run the London Marathon, as well as a half marathon. Through these races, my goal is to raise money to support two charitable causes:

1. New Wine’s Legacy Project in Bulgaria: this is the legacy project for Pastor Michael Olawore (1961-2018) who was very passionate about development projects in Bulgaria during his time as Senior Pastor from 2013 to 2018. These projects are designed to empower the less privileged and downtrodden within the Gypsy community in Bulgaria. The project has begun work towards establishing a primary school, feeding programmes, a skills training centre, a Bible training centre and Church branches.

2. Samuel Folorunsho Care Foundation, Ibadan, Nigeria: This foundation improves the life chances of orphans and vulnerable children in Ibadan by providing parental care, a place of safety and sustenance, access to education and health facilities.

The funds raised will go to these causes using the ratio 2:1 (New Wine Bulgarian Project: Samuel Folorunsho Care Foundation). Your support and donations will empower impoverished people in Bulgaria and encourage orphans in Nigeria.

Thank you in advance for your donations.
