On Friday 10th February 2023 at Forever Manchester’s Birthday Party, we were pleased to announce Emma Livingstone as the winner of our Captain Manchester Award.

The award has been kindly sponsored by Auto Trader.

The Captain Manchester Award is given in recognition of an individual with true Mancunian spirit. This person has given their time, money, skills or resources to support communities of Greater Manchester; has gone the extra mile and embodies the spirit of Forever Manchester.

When Forever Manchester launched the Ambassador programme back in 2012, Emma Livingstone was one of the first people to take up the challenge, and has been supporting the charity ever since on a personal and professional basis.

Emma was years ahead of Manchester’s ‘bee’ phenomenon, becoming a beekeeper in 2014, and raising money for Forever Manchester by giving people the opportunity to adopt one of 100,000 bees at the Printworks where Emma used to work. Whilst working at AO Arena, Emma was fundamental in strengthening their relationship providing sponsorship and free advertising space for Forever Manchester.

The award was presented on the night by Sarah Eaves from Auto Trader.
