MASH receives Volunteering Award!
The MASH Volunteering team received an award for ‘Breaking Through’ in Volunteering at the 2015 International Women’s Day Awards.
The night was part of a range of events organised by Manchester Council to praise the work and achievements of the city’s women in light of International Women’s Day 2015.
The awards, now in their third year, celebrated inspirational women, recognising their valuable contribution to the city and their outstanding work.
Breaking Through, Manchester’s theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, aims to serve as a reminder of the glass ceiling that women have had to break through over the years to change perceptions about what they can do challenging stereotypes and achieving in all areas of life both professionally and personally.
Councillor Sue Murphy, deputy leader of Manchester City Council said: “The women of this city never cease to amaze me. Although there are only five awards there are thousands of winners. I would like to say thank you to all those women who continue to strive and fight for equality in the city and who play such a vital role in making Manchester the place that people want to work and live in today.”
Congratulations to all our 65 hard working, dedicated volunteers!
