In the first of six mini-documentaries featuring young people for whom the Eastgate has been a formative influence, Tim Wilcock speaks with Laura Day – a volunteer usher and actor in a variety of stage performances.
As Tim remarks as part of his background notes on the series (see full details on YouTube link): “Listen to their opinions on the impact being a part of the Eastgate family has had on their lives, particularly in terms of the skills and confidence it has given to each of them.
