Lashley's Cakes making life sweeter...for enact community. #enactawards2018
It was great to join in with a night of celebration for children, young people and adults who do so much in the local community. This year I had the priviledge of returning to my previous workplace to cheer on all the good and hard work that is developing despite adversity with funding cuts.
Overwhelming..YES! But it was priceless to return to the place that was home for me for 6 years, and catch up with young people!!, parents, trustees, dignitaries, and even network too - not just as a former youth worker but as a cake baker and decorator!
I was in such a rush that I didn't get a moment to take a picture with all the 8 personalised nominee cakes for the 'Adult of the Year' category. However thanks to @shenny_shen_ I have a brilliant snap of the awards given on Wednesday night, captured in one photo.
Shen and her son Taye were nominees at this year's award. Well done Shen, you are always ready to be of best support to others, even when you don't feel like it is much - its always just right. You bring much smiles and laughter into lives! Even the smh moments Your motherly heart is big and shines through the way you care for people and animals! (Once Shen was compelled to take what young people thought was a stray dog to the vet, along with another colleague. Only to find out halfway there that the owner came back looking for their pet Shen returned it safe and sound, tucked with a blanket, carried in a tesco basket lool).. priceless. Keep up all the hard work Shen, and continue to love others with your life. And well done to Taye..at the age where whatever question you ask everything is 'fine' again another child who is very smart, willing to try and overcome his own fears. And has the confidence to succeed once he puts his mind to it.
You both are awesome. Long post I know...but I got to give credit where it is due!
