Salford City Reds Foundation Win Award


SCRF Win Business Award


Yesterday evening (23rd May) Salford City Reds Foundation were delighted to be announced Community Award winner of the Salford Business Awards 2013, being presented with the award at the award dinner held at Salford City Stadium. 


The Community Award celebrates businesses that make a committed and proactive contribution to the enhancement and benefit of the community. With the judges evaluating how organisations worked effectively with community groups, the impact within local communities and commitment to continue community work in the future, we at Salford City Reds Foundation are naturally delighted to have our endeavours recognised reflected in this award.


While being delighted to be nominated alongside a selection of fantastic businesses who make real, notable contributions to the Salford region and community, naturally winning the award provides everyone involved with the foundation a real motivation for the challenges to come while congratulating the team on a remarkable performance over the last 12 months.


Collecting the award, Mark Brocklehurst Community & Businesses Manager at SCRF said, “We are absolutely over the moon to have won the Community Award at the Salford Business Awards, and it represents the strides the team have achieved over the past year in light of tricky circumstances. It’s been a big year at the foundation and the club as a whole, and with a growing team at the foundation we aim to continue our work with community groups and individuals.”


Accompanying Mark to collect the award was long time SCRF Director John Blackburn, who added “We would like to congratulate all our fellow nominees, and we are delighted to be able to accept this award. It will give the whole team, as well as our community of partners, a huge boost in consideration of the efforts they put in day to day, and recognition of a job well done. We will strife to continue our good work and hope to be sitting here again in 12 months time. Thank you to Salford City Council, who sponsor this award, and to all the organisers of a great evening.”
