Newsflash: Didsbury Dinners founder wins #Manchester “Woman and the environment” award at International Women’s Day awards

Amanda Woodvine, the founder of Didsbury Dinners, last night won the “Woman and the Environment” award at Manchester’s International Women’s Day celebration. Speaking to MCFly at the awards ceremony, which was held in the Great Hall at Manchester Town Hall, Ms Woodvine said;

“I’m really really pleased. Obviously it’s not just an award for me, it’s an award for the whole team. We’ve got a couple of our cookery champs here tonight who have run their first cookery courses this year. They’re all volunteers, we’ve got twelve of them, really enthusiastic, and they’re running free “learn to cook” courses that last six weeks, with 123 places this year alone. Please visit for more information.”

A more in-depth report on the very well-executed and inspiring awards ceremony will appear on this site imminently.
