GMYN Volunteer is Best New Volunteer in the Northwest!

We’re really pleased to announce that Nora Living, of Hulme, has recently been awarded a big accolade. The Fresh Award is one of several categories in the National Youth Volunteering Awards, hosted by youth volunteering charity v, and is awarded to the overall best new volunteer of the year.  Nora has won the Fresh Award for the North West!

Richard, her Youth Volunteer Adviser, said:

”With the help of a range of workers Nora has been building her life here in the UK, and earlier this year began to get involved in volunteering as a way of giving something back and learning more about her new home. Nora got involved with the vinvolved team and quickly became one our best, most dedicated volunteers!

If you spend any time with Nora you will see that she is extremely good natured and this has an effect on the groups she is a part of. If we don’t have any community events one weekend we will get texts on our work mobiles from Nora asking why there isn’t anything to do that weekend and when will she be able to volunteer again!

There are very few people who can adapt to another culture and language, create a new life for themselves, and get so involved in their community as quickly and as well as Nora has. She’s very unassuming, but under the surface she is actually an incredibly strong and resilient person.

By working with a very wide range of organisations over the space of just a couple of months, Nora has contributed to work that has touched the lives of all kinds of people, all over Manchester. She hasn’t just been in one place, working with one group of people, she’s been all over the place, working with LOADS of people!!”

The overall winner for the country will be selected at a glitzy celebration event to be held early in 2011, so we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed! Congratulations Nora!
