How Sophie saved with Silley – and backed the kids of Kibera

The electric snake had claimed dozens of ‘lives’ – but had no answer for the dextrous skills of one CRE visitor.

Sophie Wellbelove took on the Save With Silley Challenge at CRE 2018, reaching the end of the snake without getting ‘electrocuted’ – in just eight seconds.

‘It was an incredibly quick time and the best of the week,’ said Andrew Silley, who specialises in energy procurement, management and consumption reduction for churches and individuals. ‘We were delighted to send £100 to the Turning Point Trust on Sophie’s behalf!’ The trust works with children in Kibera, a vast slum in Nairobi, Kenya where 7,000 children are out of school due to poverty. The trust returns children to school, providing quality education and promoting literacy in the community. 

As an energy professional who understands the complexities of the industry, Andrew reviews expenditure and suggests ways we can all make savings.

‘There’s really nothing to do other than decide if you want to save money,’ he said. ‘And there’s no charge for my services. The churches and charities I work with have saved between five and 56 per cent on their energy bills! In fact, I am so confident of finding you the best deal, I guarantee to beat the renewal offer of your current supplier (as detailed in your initial renewal offer letter) or I will make a donation of £75 to the charity of your choice.’

Among the charities Andrew currently supports is The Message, based in Manchester.

‘All the more reason to pay me a visit at Event City!’ said Andrew.
