Blind man’s home-made, handcrafted clock raffled away to help church


(WBRE/ YOU)- Last night we told you about a clock being raffled off to help a church in Schuylkill County. 
      That clock was handed off to a lucky winner this afternoon. 

It is no ordinary clock. 
      This clock was hand-made by 72- year old lenny mchugh, who is blind. 
      McHugh donated it to the Trinity United Church of Christ in Pottsville.  
The clock which was made using curly maple, quilted maple and bird’s eye maple, helped reach the churches goal to raise one thousand dollars. 
     The money will go towards the churches winter heating bills. 

“We are a very close family. A church that works well together. And so I bless them and thank them for all the help they gave us. And especially to Lenny,” Elizabeth Boyer, of the Trinity United Church of Christ said.

“You look at  a tree. You see the bark. Branches. Trunk trees. You don’t see what’s inside it. And then you look at the beauty of that and it’s kind of reminds me. Makes me think of all the beauty inside of us,” McHugh said.

The church has held 35 raffles over the years to raise money to keep the church afloat.
