Local hero

 

Just over a week ago, twenty-year old Folajimi Olubunmi-Adewole (Jimi), from Bermondsey's Neckinger Estate lost his life whilst trying to rescue a woman who had fallen into the river close to London Bridge.
 
Yesterday evening hundreds gathered in Spa Gardens for a vigil in his memory and the family's pastor read these words of Jesus from John's Gospel: 'My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command.'
 

Jimi was a local boy. a member of the Salmon Youth Centre, and from a family of deep faith. Our hearts go out to his parents and his brother in their great loss and we pray for them.
