Our 2014 Urban Hero of the Year is Lauren Jubb

Lauren is our 2014 Urban Hero of the Year, as well as the winner of the Volunteer Award.

Lauren’s life was transformed by the Eden team at work in her local area. They helped her grow in her faith which led to new confidence and a sense of self-worth. Now she’s committed to giving her life to sharing God’s love with young people just like her.

Friends and family, fellow Message Academy students and VIPs including GMP Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy, cheered her on as she collected her trophy at a red carpet awards ceremony in Manchester on Saturday 28 June. She also won a luxury weekend trip to London including a helicopter ride through central London (because she loves flying!)
