Last Wednesday was awards night at London Citizens, with CTC Assistant Director Fr Sean Connolly collecting ‘Congregation of the Year’ award on behalf of S Stephen and Nicholas Catholic Parish, Manor Park. Key to the congregation’s development has been Fr Sean’s commitment to ‘one to ones’. Interns from Notre Dame and Cambridge University have also played their part in this.
CTC Director Angus Ritchie was one of the Tower Hamlets team collecting the award for ‘Borough of the Year’ – and again, Jellicoe interns have had a significant role in the deepening of engagement in organising.
Congratulations also go to one of our Muslim friends and neighbours, Mahera Ruby of Muslimaat, recognised as ‘Leader of the Year’.
A number of employers, including KPMG, got awards for applying and promoting the Living Wage. If there has been a wooden spoon award, it might well have gone to The Disney Store – where this evening we took part in a carol service with a difference. A blend of traditional carols and Living Wage songs were sung by not-entirely-welcome gathering in Disney’s Oxford Street branch.
