Community groups and charities in Wythenshawe & Sale East are being invited to contact Mike Kane MP to nominate themselves for the Paul Goggins Memorial Prize.
The national prize will be awarded to the best civil society initiative that can demonstrate that it has reduced poverty in the community.
The prize, worth £3000, will be given jointly by the APPG on Poverty and the Webb Memorial Trust.
The judges will be looking for innovative and engaging ideas that have worked effectively in and with local communities.
Mike Kane MP, who was elected in a by-election in February this year following Paul’s sudden death said: “Paul’s life work was committed to fighting poverty and this initiative is one I know he would have approved of. I hope that in tribute to Paul we get lots of community groups coming forward from his constituency.”
“We have some amazing community groups doing invaluable work in Wythenshawe and Sale East and it would be fantastic if the first winner of this prize came from Paul’s own constituency.”
