Faith, 16, a Grade 11 student at Lakefield College School, received a Diana Award herself in 2017 for starting Cuddles for Cancer, a non-profit organization which provides blankets to people suffering from cancer and other illnesses.
To date, she has made more than 4,000 blankets and they have been sent across Canada, the United States, the UK, Germany, Brazil, Australia, France and countries in Africa.
Among many other accolades in recent years, Faith was also winner of a Me To We Youth In Action Award in 2015, and was the Youth Ambassador (a newly created role) on the United Way Peterborough campaign cabinet in 2017/18.
