Jamie has always been an outgoing child and young man. Beginning at the local Mencap nursery when he was three, Jamie went on to Infants and Junior School and to secondary mainstream community school, where he obtained a GCSE in Food Technology. He was fully involved with Cub Scouts and Sea Scouts at the same time. He emerged as a leader in both Sea Scouts and Barnado`s local community project, which provided activities for youngsters with wide-ranging disabilities. As well as being an active church member, Jamie volunteers full-time, spreading himself between local charities, church, and the community centre. At a special service marking Liverpool Mencap`s 60 years, Jamie read a prayer he had written himself as well as a bible reading, in front of a 100-strong congregation ,including the Lord Mayor. His church minister says Jamie has played an active part in the lively church youth group, and was a constant source of helpful ideas, showing great consideration for the needs of other members. Jamie plays for one of Liverpool Football Club`s disabled teams. This year he'll be representing the club in Europe for the third time in four years, because of his football prowess, but above all for his social skills. The trip organiser said Jamie `is a credit to the club and the City of Liverpool`. It is a privilege to nominate Jamie, a young man who is well-known and respected in his community and has achieved far more than anyone could ever have expected.
