Ruby's nomination story

I met Ruby when she was a member of my Sixth Form where she worked tirelessly for local national and international charities.This work has continued since she left school; She has recruited a team of both young and old people as part of this group and vigorously works every weekend and in the week to organise fund raising activities for UNICEF.

This work involves liaising with schools/attending events to raise both awareness and moneyand devise lots of other money raising activities eg sponsored 5 day walks.She has volunteered for UNICEF for almost 4 years on a variety of campaigns as well as setting up the Sheffield UNICEF Fundraising Group. 

Ruby does this as a volunteer alongside full time employment & full time university studies.She is an inspiration to all of us as she is only 21 years old.I heartily recommend that you consider this application.Thank you.
