Earlier in the year The Booth Centre was approached by Tony Sutherland from Paramount Media Productions who offered to make a new promotional film about the Booth Centre on a pro-bono basis. Mikey North, best known for his role as Gary Windass in Coronation Street, provides the narration. Thanks to Tony, Mikey and everyone at Paramount Media for their support.
On Thursday 26 September the first Spirit of Manchester Awards ceremony was held at NOMA, the new Co-operative building.
It was a fantastic night highlighting the work of Manchester’s voluntary and community sector.
We were thrilled to win the vote and the award for best volunteer involving organisation. The Lord Mayor of Manchester presented us with a trophy, a certificate, pen and £20 of Manchester Christmas market shillings.
For more information about the awards please see the Spirit of Manchester Awards website and you can see photos from the night on the flickr page.
You can watch the film about what our volunteers mean to us here
