A DOOR that bears an image likened to the face of Jesus is to be shipped overseas as part of an aid convoy.
The pine door hit the headlines in April, after customers at D and S Supplies DIY store in Longroyd Bridge spotted the face in a knot in the wood.
Shop manager Philip Ader, of Golcar, a committed Christian who worships at Golcar Baptist Church, said customers had been stopped in their tracks by the image, which measures about an inch high.
The door was bought by Slaithwaite man Andrew McVeigh, who was doing up his house at the time.
But his home improvements fell through and the door stayed stored at D and S.
Now, Mr McVeigh is finally putting it to good use and has decided to send it to an orphanage in Ukraine through the Slaithwaite Holy Family Church Convoy of Hope
Mr McVeigh finally collected the door and it is now being stored with other goods ready for shipment.
Mr Ader also gave him £200 for the orphanage, on behalf of Golcar Baptist Church. The cash was raised at a quiz night held by the church at The Wheel pub in the village.
Mr McVeigh is a member of the Holy Family Church in Commercial Street, which has been running convoys to eastern Europe since 1993, helped by several Rotary clubs.
The next shipment will leave in April and go to an orphanage in Diszakerdsztun in Ukraine.
Mr McVeigh will take time out of his financial services job in Leeds to accompany the convoy.
He said: "This is a new project. We went there six weeks ago with money to buy food for three months to be delivered to poor families. While there we were shown this orphanage.
"It was dirty, the mattresses were soiled and there were mice running around. It was awful. The director of the orphanage was an orphan there himself until, like everyone, he was kicked out at 16.
"He is trying to offer something reasonable to the kids."
The Convoy of Hope is collecting clothes, sports equipment, school materials and tinned or dried foods for the orphans.
Helpers also want shoes as the orphans only get one new pair every three years.
Mr McVeigh said: "They have very little."
