Event description
Lecture by Mike Haines O.B.E.

About this Event

At the beginning of March 2013, David, Mike’s brother, travelled with a French organisation called ACTED to help refugees in Syria. Barely a week later, Mike got a phone call from ACTED telling him that David had been kidnapped by a group calling themselves the ‘Islamic State’, otherwise known as ISIS.

Within the space of a month in the late summer of 2014, ISIS posted footage online of the murders of three of its hostages. The first two were Americans, Jim Foley and Stephen Sotloff, and the third was his brother, David.

His barbaric and very public death was a huge shock for all the family, and it left them bereft. Mike found it hard to come to terms with the fact that his brother was dead.

His lecture tonight will be one of unity, tolerance and understanding.

Mike’s Lecture tonight is free of charge but a retrial collection would be an appropriate way to mark your appreciation.

The venue for this event has been donated by the Kirkcaldy branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and all proceeds will be donated to Mike’s cause.
