Community Action Award

2010 Winner : Student Action Manchester

Student Action Manchester

This year the first prize of £10,000 moved north to the Students of Manchester, who volunteer throughout the year to help a wide variety of people young and old and from every community. The Award will enable many more deserving individuals to be made to feel valued and important, and at the same time have a lasting impact on many of the students.

Emily Booth Projects Manager for Student Action Manchester, when asked what the impact will be on winning the award said that “New volunteering projects can now be made possible”

Students Action Manchester is part of the University of Manchester Student’s Union, and was set up to enable students to give something back to the community.

Emily completed an application so that specific projects in Mosside and Manchester City Centre could be undertaken for the first time and then become sustainable for the foreseeable future.

The £10,000 was presented at Shern Hall Methodist Church on the 16th July 2011.
