Matthew was pleased to attend the annual Jesus House Celebrating Life Banquet in Brent Cross. This is an event to mark the contribution made by elderly people in the local community. It is attended by senior citizens from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds and more than fifty care homes across the boroughs of Barnet and Brent.
Speaking from the stage, Matthew paid tribute to the spiritual work undertaken by Jesus House in local communities, workplaces and schools, and the willingness of congregants to help others.
The event was also attended by Theresa Villiers, MP for Chipping Barnet, and Cllr Barry Evangeli.
