Manchester Boys Win Prodigious Award

We’re delighted to share that six wonderful boys from Manchester Grammar School (MGS) have been awarded the first ever national Goldsmiths’ Company Community Engagement Award for their work with victims of modern slavery!

The project was set up in 2018 as a partnership between MGS, St Chrysostom's Church and Medaille Trust and has had a huge impact on our clients. 

Each week, the boys work with Medaille Trust clients, teaching them English as a foreign language. Harrison Kaye, one of the students involved in the scheme, said “being a part of this project and seeing its impact week on week has been extremely gratifying and I’m sure the whole team would agree that it’s been a highlight of our time at MGS.”

Mrs Vivienne Horsfield, Assistant Head at MGS, commented: “I am delighted for the boys. To win this award is such an honour…They are passionate about this issue and their work on this project is making a tangible difference to those rescued from human trafficking, giving them the skills to rebuild their lives and get jobs. It's an inspiring project and to see, first hand, the difference it has made to these adults is a privilege.”
