Rev Paul was in for a real surprise at the end of his service at Brailsford Church on Sunday 20th November.
Gillian Sewell, Chief Executive Officer of the YMCA in Derby presented Paul with one of their highest awards, theTim Farquhar Memorial Award.This was in recognition of all his hard work and dedication to young people who, for whatever reason, find themselves homeless.
Gillian spoke about how much Paul helps these young people in practical ways, such as making sure they have starter packs when the YMCA help them move into their first homes. He encourages people in the benefice to put together Christmas boxes for them. He is constantly fundraising and has raised over £150,000. Speaking to Gillian after the service, she said these young people are so important to Paul, the YMCA is able to tell them that someone cares. Not only does Paul feed their stomachs, he feeds their spirit and gives them hope. He gives them a voice. He saves lives.
