Shoeboxes and Stripes

Matthew speaks on behalf of the Kids in Stripy Scarves group, as part of a night of music dedicated to Lynne McGeehan, held at The Rock in Portstewart, Northern Ireland in December 2009.

Lynne, a passionate musician, youth worker and stripe-wearer died suddenly in December 2008. To mark the one year anniversary, former musical colleagues, friends and family came together to share favourite stories and songs.

Lynne was appointed youth worker at St. Mark's, Portadown in the summer before her passing, and had already ingratiated herself among the church family there; Matthew shares her particular and immediate impact among himself and the other young people within the church's youth programme, and also opens up as to how the need to cope with the shock of Lynne's death would ultimately serve to bring their whole group to a whole new and positive level of friendship and sharing.
