Spirit of Manchester 2016 Best Community Space Award winner – Growing in the City

Macc have announced the winner of their Spirit of Manchester 2016 Best Community Space Award – and it’s congratulations to our very own Growing Manchester group, ‘Growing in the City’!

This is the first year of the Best Community Space award and Macc decided that the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Manchester would decide the winner. Over 700 votes were cast in the online vote and Growing in the City were up against some tough competition who are doing some fantastic work in Manchester.

Mike Wild, Macc Chief Executive said:

“Many congratulations to Growing in the City for winning the Best Community Space Award in our first ever online vote. They are worthy winners but it has to be said, looking at the wealth of talent in all the nominated groups, there were no losers in this competition!”

Growing in the City will be collecting their award at the Spirit of Manchester 2016 Awards Ceremony on 6 October.
