    Ben Lillie

    Ben is the Project Director at The Rock, a Christian project providing challenging activities for young people, from urban street sports to essential life skills.

    Vi and her husband Ray lost their son Chris in a random attack by a gang of youths in 2001. Vi was originally incredibly angry but through the strength she found in her faith, she has since been able to forgive her son’s killers. For the past 7 years both Ray and Vi have worked in prisons and are huge advocates of the power of forgiveness and restorative justice.
