LONDON — With paint and paintbrushes, about 85 volunteers donned yellow Mormon Helping Hands vests to help out at a local school on Nov. 3.
The response of the parents of the I.E. Vicento Canada Blanch — a Spanish school located near Portabello Road Market in London — was of gratitude and appreciation. The parents said the service performed by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints wouldn't have happened without them.
Classrooms were painted by youths and adult volunteers from the Hyde Park and South Kensington wards of the London Hyde Park Stake. Charlotte Illera, Hyde Park Ward young women president, organized the day’s activities and at the end of it all, she also had sparkling freshly painted classrooms for her children’s school.
Helping Hands volunteers Jack Tingey, a new priest, and Redford Bassett, a newly called missionary, noted they were glad to work alongside the full-time missionaries getting a taste of what they have to look forward to as they prepare for missionary service. Youths and adults alike worked side by side enjoying the fellowship and the chance to be of service.
