This summer we were nominated for three awards at the North West Charity Awards. On Friday 12th October 2018, a group of our staff went to represent Manchester Youth Zone at the awards ceremony and celebrate the impact of charities in the North West…
We’d like to offer a huge congratulations to our CEO, Richard Marsh, who was highly commended for the Lifetime Achievement Award! “It’s such an honour to have been highly commended for the Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the North West Charity Awards,” said Richard. “There is so much amazing work going on in the third sector, it’s quite overwhelming to receive such recognition.”
One of our Founder Patrons, MoneyPlus Group, was also nominated at the awards for Outstanding Charity Support! “My job and the work that we do could not happen without the support of our fantastic supporters,” Richard continued. “Over the year MoneyPlus Group have arranged fundraising events, wrapped a bus load of Christmas presents, volunteered on session, donated pumpkins and costumes for our upcoming Halloween party, and so much more.
“CEO Chris Davis is the Chair of our Board and has been a constant hand of support since taking on the role, regularly showing his face around the Youth Zone and building relationships with both staff and young people.”
We’re happy that MoneyPlus are being recognised for their phenomenal support, and we’re incredibly lucky that companies and volunteers continue to get invested all aspects of Manchester Youth Zone.
We’re proud to be nominated at the North West Charity Awards – congratulations to the other charities whose hard work was also recognised!
