14-year-old Trinity Pendlebury was nominated for the Lundie Memorial Award by Martin Whiffen. Minister of Chorley URC.

He described her in his nomination, saying,  "Trinity is a hard-working, dedicated young person. She gives time each week to help the Homeless and Vulnerable people of Chorley by serving at Chorley URC’s Open Kitchen. The work is arduous and not always pleasant. At times the folk at Open Kitchen can be difficult and aggressive.

"Trinity approaches her tasks at Open Kitchen both cheerfully and enthusiastically and her contribution to the work is
greatly valued. I have no hesitation in nominating her as a worthy recipient of the Lundie Prize.

"For information : Open Kitchen has served over 12,000 free meals to homeless and vulnerable people in the six years it has been

We look forward to hearing about the presentation of her certificate and medal and finding out how Trinity plans to spend the £100 award.... watch this space for more news, and hopefully a photograph or two 

Also nominated this month were 17-year-old Morven Sanderson from Scotland for her role as synod youth representative and her contributions to raising funds to help those who are homeless AND 14-year-old James Rowbottom from North Western synod who came through some difficult times to be a valued member of the church community, the Sunday School, the church choir and support for his cousin who has additional needs. It was a difficult decision to choose between these three worthy nominations and we hope that the church and synod will celebrate Morven and James when they receive their certificates too.  

Remember, you too can nominate a child or young person who is playing their part in the mission of God in their church, synod or community. Let's celebrate together.
