City Year UK corps member represents voice of young Londoners at St Paul’s Memorial Service


On 7th July our thoughts went out to all those affected by the London bombings in 2005. We were very proud of corps member Aaron Grant-Booker who represented the voice of young Londoners at the special memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Aaron spoke about London as “an international cross roads of diversity and ingenuity, tolerance and respect, challenge and opportunity.” He continued “When four bombs exploded on 7 July 2005, lives were destroyed and the flame of hope faltered for what seemed like an eternal moment. For many people, nothing was the same again and yet everything was the same because the good which is in Londoners and the countless visitors whom they host at any given moment is not erased by hatred or threat but – rather – is fostered to produce a harvest of hope for each generation.”
