Lundie Memorial Awards

Do you know a child or young person who is playing their part in the mission of God in their church, synod, local community or the wider world?

The Lundie Memorial Award is designed to highlight and celebrate such individuals who are using their God-given skills, time and talent to good effect. Each month for 100 months the Children's and Youth Work Committee are awarding a medal and certificate to one of the nominated children and young people, along with a financial award of £100 to be spent to benefit children and/or young people in the church, synod or local community, however the award winner chooses.

Read about the amazing young people and children nominated for this award and how the recipient chooses to spend the money.

This month the decision has been made to give the Lundie Memorial Award to an amazing young woman who has dedicated herself to the work of the Sanyu Babies' Home in Kampala, Uganda.
