Young Redbridge volunteers are hailed on awards night

Graduates of training programme are praised


More than 100 young people were honoured for their dedication to volunteering at a ceremony at Jewish Care’s Redbridge Community Centre.

All are participants in the Mike (Motivation, Inspiration, Knowledge and Education) programme, training young people to become leaders.

The evening included the presentation of the Saul Keene Award for Excellence in Youth Leadership to 17-year-old Millie West, a “thoughtful and approachable leader who is loved and appreciated at Redbridge JCC”.

Millie said it was “a great feeling knowing that what you do really makes a difference to a child’s day. I’m planning to study speech and language therapy at university and working with children at RJCC has really influenced me.”

Volunteer of the Year went to 16-year-old Jasmine Spurling and presentations were also made to Joshua Appleby, Scott Enness, Jacob Landsman, Lauren Leeman, Isabella Mazin, Marnie Power-Sherwin, Natasha Schiffman and Jamie Shone, recognising special commitment.

They have each volunteered for at least 100 hours over the past year.
