Mandela’s Chaplain – 8 June, Alabare Fundraiser

Join Ana & Tod attending:

Tuesday 8th June 7:00 pm – on Zoom

A talk by Reverend Colin Chambers, former chaplain to Nelson Mandela in Robben Island prison.
All proceeds in aid of Alabare’s work with homeless and vulnerable people.

To Friends of Alabare,

Please join us for this fascinating online talk from Rev Colin Chambers, who was chaplain to Nelson Mandela for eight years on Robben Island. Colin is now an Alabaré chaplain, helping us to support veterans who have become homeless to rebuild their lives.

Colin will talk about Mandela, focussing particularly on forgiveness and reconciliation including an introduction to apartheid, and after his talk there will be an opportunity to ask questions through the Question and Answer facility. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in jail under South Africa’s apartheid government, including 18 years in the notorious prison ‘Robben Island’ off the coast of Cape Town. Nelson Mandela was finally released from prison on February 11, 1990 and went on to become President of South Africa and one of the 20th Century’s most influential figures.  The evening should provide fascinating insights into Nelson Mandela and life on Robben Island.

The cost of a ticket to join the event is £15, and tickets can be bought on the Alabare website .

Details on how to join the webinar will be sent to ticket holders a few days before the event.

This event was originally planned for March 2020 but was the first of many events which we had to postpone due to the Covid pandemic. We are delighted that Colin has agreed that, in order to avoid any further delays, we should now hold this event online. Those who already hold tickets from last year will be able to access this event without doing any more. More details can also be found by following the link above.

With many thanks for your support,

Helen Inglis
Church Engagement Officer
