We were delighted to learn that our Vice Chair, Sandy Lindsay, Founder of Tangerine PR and the Juice Academy, has been awarded the MBE in the recent Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Sandy set up Tangerine PR, one of the UK’s leading integrated communications consultancies in 2002, was given the award for her services to business and young people.

This fantastic award was given to Sandy in recognition of her work in particular with the Juice Academy, which she set up two years ago. The company has provided a social media apprenticeship programme and has helped over 80 young people into employment so far. Sandy has also set up a graduate retention programme, Manchester Masters and Creative Break, providing business administration within creative agencies and marketing departments across the North West.

Sandy has been on the Forever Manchester Board since February 2009 and is currently Vice Chair.

A massive congratulations from all at TeamFM!
