Thank You Manchester! :)

Wow!

What a busy week I've had! Just about recovered from climbing up Scafell aside from a few niggling aches and a wee chest infection!

Last friday I was invited to the Inspiring Women Awards at the Midland Hotel, Manchester. Following a fabulous 3-course meal accompanied by sparkling wine I was presented with the award for 'Social Entrepreneur' which came as something of a shock especially considering the competition! A big thank you to the event organisers and especially to Kath Robinson who nominated me. It's really fantastic that the work everyone at EMERGE and I have done over the years has received recognition in the wider North West community. Not that we're resting on our laurels by any stretch - we've got big plans for expanding the 3Rs (waste reduction, reuse and recycling) and resource efficiency in Greater Manchester, to continue expanding upon the educational and community work we do and to grow as a social business as well.

I've got a mountain of bids, tenders and partnerships to contend with now but before I wade into it I 'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your support , we wouldn't make any progress without it .

Onwards & upwards!

Lucy.

EMERGE Climbs Scafell for Fareshare

Greetings,

I'd like to say a very big thank you and congratulations to everyone who took part in the EMERGE Food Big Green Challenge and also a massive thank you to everyone who so kindly sponsored our efforts. We're still counting up all of the donations but it looks like we have raised a considerable amount of money towards an extremely worthy cause in the form of our Fareshare operation diverting surplus food from landfill and to alleviate food poverty locally.

Here's a picture of most of the team at the summit, looking thoroughly sodden! All nine of us made it in addition to another 40+ participants from our corporate sponsor.


Onwards & upwards!

Lucy.
