Bruce commenced an amazing football journey playing for Watford and went on to sign a historic deal in UK football history as the first teenager to be sold for over a million pounds. (£1.25 million to be exact) Bruce also played for the England under 21’s 11 times scoring for major goals as well playing for Barnsley, Stoke City, Sheffield United, Doncaster, Chesterfield and York. His career that spanned 17 years with 469 appearances with 117 goals.
After retiring Bruce felt the need to start a company that would cater to enhancing social activity with a godly ethos. The company was named Love Life based on the bible verse John 10:10 where Jesus said He had come to give life and life that was more fulfilling. Bruce saw areas in christian entertainment that were untapped, and decided to host a ‘Roller Gospel’ event after attending a regular Roller Disco in London with his older brother. The first event in August 2008 was a roaring success with hundreds in attendance and the success has continued with skaters travelling from various parts of the UK.
In September 2009 Love Life hosted a tailor made event titled “An Evening with Nigel & Caroline Benn’ consisting of a three course meal, life entertainment and Nigel and Caroline sharing their life journey and story. Nigel’s story of success, becoming the World Super middle weight champion amidst many personal challenges made a great impact.
Love Life UK continue to host Roller Gospel Events with the next event marking their 2nd anniversary taking place on Bank Holiday Monday 30th August 2010 titled Roller Gospel Blitz The Reunion. For details please visit: www.rollergospel.com
I’ll be spinning some of the finest gospel music alongside Dj Divine Influence; Proclaima and Kelechi at the event.
In the near future Love Life UK intends to expand to various areas of Christian entertainment and social activity.
