Interact’s Wigan team are delighted to announce that they have won Greater Manchester Business Awards “Fundraiser Of the Year” Award!

The Greater Manchester Business Awards, organised by Rich Media, are judged by an independent panel of business peers, and celebrate professionalism and excellence of businesses and organisations across the Greater Manchester Area.

In 2020, Interact’s Wigan site raised money for charities such as Mind in Salford, Alzheimer’s Society and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Through a combination of raffles, sponsored activities and a performance-based business donation, the team has managed to raise over £11,000 for charities across the year; often choosing organisations with close connections to their staff.

Interact CC understands the importance of community engagement, and will continue to work closely with its local communities to provide support where it is needed most.

“We are delighted to receive this award. With the onslaught of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we were really worried that our fundraising wouldn’t gain momentum but oh how wrong we were! This award is only going to motivate us to do more in our local community and with our chosen charities.”

– Sophie Dorrell, Project Manager

The Awards Ceremony took place on Friday, 3rd September at the stunning Hotel Brooklyn, Manchester.
