韋德斯菲爾德104歲老人利用YouTube進行 "交心 "活動

來自韋德斯菲爾德的埃里克-庫爾說,雖然他不能經常走路,但他 "仍然可以說很多話"。

"他說:"我很相信我們需要保持團結,因為今天有很多東西將我們分開......我們需要互相安慰。

在朋友的幫助下,他儘可能頻繁地上傳內容,他說經常有遠在美國的觀眾詢問他的下一個視頻何時發布。

雖然他的許多視頻都集中在他的信仰上,但庫爾先生說,他在網上發布的內容所結識的朋友是關鍵。

庫爾先生在北愛爾蘭長大,曾在格萊納馮隊踢球,但在1974年,當動亂使他的司機生活過於危險時,他跟隨兒子來到韋德斯菲爾德。

他找了一份公寓管理員的工作,一直工作到60歲退休,但他說他一直很忙,寫書並為伍爾弗漢普頓的新十字醫院的醫院廣播工作了14年。

但他說他的熱情是 "做我內心深處的事"--與人們談論他的信仰。

當他年輕的時候,他經常到人們的家中拜訪,讓他們知道 "事情永遠不會像他們看起來那麼糟糕"。


Eric Cull, from Wednesfield, said while he could not walk much he "can still talk a lot".

"I am a good believer that we need to keep together as there is so much today that separates us... we need to comfort one and other," he said.

With the help of friends, he uploads content as often as possible and said he often had viewers from as far away as the USA asking when his next video would be published.

While many of his videos focus on his faith, Mr Cull said the friends he has made from posting online has been key.

Mr Cull grew up in Northern Ireland and played in goal for Glenavon, but followed his son to Wednesfield in 1974 when the Troubles made his life as a chauffeur too dangerous.

He took a job as a flat superintendent and worked until his retirement at the age of 60, but said he had remained busy, writing books and working for the hospital radio at New Cross hospital in Wolverhampton for 14 years.

But he said his passion was "doing what's dear to my heart" - talking to people about his faith.

When he was younger he used to visit people in their homes, letting them know "things are never as bad as they seem".
