Hi all,

College is really going well - I'm on my sixth week now. It's intense but the finish is starting to take shape. You can see some of my work in the pictures!

I'm really glad I had the opportunity to do this, so thank you so much to all of my supporters. 😁

Some pictures of my progress

I've started my tiling course and have nearly completed my second week.

I’m really enjoying it though it’s not as easy as I thought it would be. Especially the diamond shaped tiles when you have to pull it round the wall - there’s a sequence affect, it’s very tricky and every cut has got to be precise otherwise it could throw your wall out of shape. It takes a lot of concentration but it's going really well! 👍

Thank you to all of my supporters making this come true. I can actually see myself doing this for a living now and it's not just a dream. So thank you to everyone who has contributed.

On a trip to Ireland with my recovery group

I'm booked onto a tiling course with a start date in September! 🎉

I'll be keeping busy until then with some maintenance and construction projects at my church.

I would like to say a big thank you to all of my supporters so far, who have believed in me and are helping me reach my goal. It's overwhelming to think of how people have helped me get here.

Ray.

On a pilgrimage to Bosnia last week with my hostel

Hi Beam!

I've been busy doing voluntary work doing bits and pieces of construction at a Holy Ghost residence. ⛪ I help Father John doing various jobs maintaining the house. 🔧 It’s been keeping me busy and I am excited waiting for the course to start to get back to some structure.

I’m really overwhelmed reading all the mini texts from my supporters.

It’s really touching so a big thank you to them out there. 🙏

My campaign just went live!

I'm over the moon! I feel really happy that it has started now. All the prep work and now I can finally start looking forward to my future.
