Sophie, 14, Weald of Kent YFC, Kent

WINNER – New Member of the Year Award 2020

Every club needs a Sophie – her enthusiasm and creativity helped to keep her club connected during lockdown and even as a new member she wasn’t afraid to step up and suggest ideas.

Sophie joined in most of the online meetings and was the inspiration behind a lot of the virtual activities that kept everyone entertained. She also got involved in leading some of the online meetings – and even joined in when she was on holiday in Cumbria.

Sophie joined the Junior Reading team for the first time before lockdown and came second overall and she continued to get involved in online competitions – such as stockjudging – throughout lockdown.

She even took part and won a poster competition, a challenge set by Produced in Kent – a local food and drink producer – which helped raise the profile of the club. 

Sophie’s great communication skills have really supported the club and set a positive example to other junior members. Sophie has been highlighted as a real star of the YFC future.
