Immanuel (Manny) Kemp has been awarded one of 10 runner up prizes for his charity fundraising work.  The Spicers Cambridgeshire Young People of the Year (Yopey) awards ceremony was on 15 July 2010 in St Ives.

The prize is in recognition of his outstanding 1,320 hours of voluntary work and £30,000 raised for good causes, such as Children in Need, Shelter, Marie Curie, Meningitis UK, the Red Cross, KidsCan, Alzheimer's Society, Anthony Nolan Trust and Barnardo's. Although most of Manny's time is taken up with studying chemical engineering, he spends many hours each week helping to run the university’s RAG organization and going out on fundraising 'raids' .The photo shows him dressed as Santa during one of his collections, which included going around the department and the town.

Manny has just graduated with an MEng in Chemical Engineering. In his final year he was awarded the T R C Fox prize for the student who has shown the greatest distinction in the examination for that Part of the Tripos and he was also part of the winning group for best design project presentation in the previous year.

He intends to return to Cambridge to study for a PhD in October.
