In just a few short years Becca has become a person of real influence, mentoring and supporting young people, reaching the unchurched, and working with neighbourhood groups.
The Labour Councillor from Fulham Reach Ward said:
“[Becca] has helped establish St A’s as a key player in the local area Activities Partnership, working with the Council, London Sports Trust, Tenants and Residents Associations and Boat Club to organise summer holiday events for local children. This has resulted in a wide range of activities for young people on our estates… She is also an active member of the safer Neighbourhood panel in Fulham Reach where she speaks with authority about the impact her work is having in the area.”
Presenting the award on behalf of Moorlands College, Andy du Feu recognised Becca’s servant heart, sharing God’s ultimate commendation, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” (Matt 25:23)
The Christian Youth Work Awards are all about appreciating and celebrating the incredible work done with young people in churches and through Christian organisations up and down the UK. They don’t just give their time, they give themselves. The Youth Worker of the Year award, sponsored by Moorlands College, is all about being exceptional, and awarded to the youth worker who has excelled at building positive relationships with young people, helping them to see their potential and fulfil it. The hard-working winner is patient and caring, and a great example to young people.
