Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has presented a Citizen’s Award to Enya Krool, a six-year-old who has raised almost £700 for St Mary’s Foodbank during the lockdown.
Enya was nominated for raising money for the foodbank in Haughton Green during the Coronavirus crisis. This included raising £670 by getting people to sponsor her for going 24 hours without any screen-time.
She has also supported the foodbank before in the past, including buying donations with her pocket money.
Gwynne has launched the Citizen’s Awards to recognise people in the Denton and Reddish constituency who have gone above and beyond for others in their community. You can nominate your own community heroes on Gwynne’s website.
Gwynne presented the award outside St Mary’s Foodbank in Haughton Green on Saturday morning.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“It was an absolute pleasure to present this Citizen’s Award to Enya.
“It’s an incredible achievement to raise so much money for such a great cause and she should be really proud.
“Foodbanks have really struggled during the lockdown so I know St Mary’s are really grateful for Enya’s fundraising.”
