Chris Lubbe (former Bodyguard to Nelson Mandela)
Friday 19th and Saturday 20th May 2017 9:30am – 12:30pm

On Friday 19th and Saturday 20th May, there will be a day with the inspirational Guest speaker Chris Lubbe. Chris was born in Port St Johns, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. A talented speaker, Chris led students in protest against the unjust system of ‘apartheid’ during his time at High School and he took up the relentless struggle against discrimination in South Africa.

Chris sees his mission in life as using his past experiences and passion to enable people to connect, communicate & inspire positive change. The key themes of his message are determination, courage, perseverance, the power of forgiveness and hope.

Chris has worked with great leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Desmond Tutu, FW De Klerk and Colin La Foy who, together with his family, he credits for teaching him the true meaning of humanity ‘Ubuntu’ and most of all, how to love unconditionally. Chris describes his story as a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit which, in turn, is a tribute to the many thousands of South Africans who have lost their lives in the pursuit of freedom.

The session will take place here at the Cathedral Centre, from 10am – 3pm. If you would like to book a place, please email daniella.stephens@dioceseofsalford.org.uk
