It is our pleasure to announce that the Youth Zone was nominated for two awards in 2016. One for Manchester Sports Awards, Youth and Community Sport Project which unfortunately we didn’t make the finalists for. We were also nominated for the Be Proud Awards Unsung Hero Group of the Year 2016. We made the finalists. Lance, one of our staff; Clover, our Chair; Steve, a volunteer and Tobija, one of our young people went along for the awards ceremony at Manchester Town Hall on December 2nd. It was a fantastic evening, they were treated to a lovely three course meal before the awards ceremony began. BMCA Youth Zone won the award for Unsung Hero Group of the Year 2016. We would like to thank our three nominees Maureen, Elliot and Rudi for giving us the opportunity to be celebrated for some of the great work we do here on the Merseybank Estate. We would also like to congratulate the other two finalists in our category, Anson Community Shop and Barakah Food Aid.
