The judging panel, included representatives from staff and customers, who were impressed with the quality of work being undertaken by individuals and groups within their communities. Rachel Stephens, who received the trophy for the Cherry Tree Project for the Best Newcomer Group, was delighted to share the vouchers with the young people she works with:

“A massive thank you to anyone who nominated us, we really appreciate it. Anyone who knows the project, knows that this isn’t our project, but it belongs to our young people who got us where we are now. The £150 belongs to you and we will be splitting the money and giving out £10 vouchers to our young people who volunteer.”

Mel Safari, who received the trophy on behalf of Yaran Northwest CIC, for the Best Online Group, said:

“During the pandemic, the team has been working endless hours, and they have put all their hard work and effort into supporting the middle-eastern and Farsi speaking community in Greater Manchester and Stockport. Thank you to everybody, this means so much to us!”
