Ujima Volunteer wins award

Winner group 1Recently Ujima volunteer Ade Olaitan was nominated for and won a prestigious Thank you Award from the Neighbourhood Partnership team who oversee Up My Street.

The Thank you Awards was a great night of celebration and inspiration with over 50 unsung local heroes from Easton, Lawrence Hill and St George receiving a Thank You Award in recognition for their contribution towards making the area a better place to live work and play.


For over 3 years, Ade has been a stellar volunteer at Ujima, she had this to say about winning her award.

“Volunteering with Ujima has been an amazing experience. I really enjoy working with and meeting new people and giving back to my community. Every day at Ujima brings new challenges and joys. By volunteering there it’s really helped me to boost my confidence, self-esteem as well as dust off old skills, whilst polishing up valuable new ones. I was totally chuffed to be nominated for and to win this award, it was both a pleasant surprise and a privilege. And I would like to say a big Thank you to all of the team at Ujima.”
