The Young People of the Year Award is about recognising and rewarding positive role models in Essex and London.
Two QMUL students, Hazel Woodhead and Shobana Sivalingam, have been shortlisted for the 2015 awards for their work in launching the Bow Foodbank Volunteering Group. The volunteering group has made huge contributions to alleviating food poverty in the local area by engaging Queen Mary students in activities to support the local Bow Foodbank.
Barts and The London Volunteering Officer, Simon Corke, who was the 2013/14 President of the Teddy Bear Hospital Volunteering Group, has also been nominated for the award, as well as QMUL alumnus Gilman Ahmed for his leadership of the Aspire Volunteering Group. The winner will be announced at a prestigious ceremony in November.
