Media Cubs young reporter celebrated at Spirit of Manchester Awards

The Spirit of Manchester Awards help to celebrate and highlight all the excellent work being carried out in Manchester’s voluntary and community sector.

We’re proud to share that our mini reporter and mini board member Ben Watkins had a very special job at this year’s awards ceremony.

Ben, who is only 13 years old, was selected as a judge on the awards panel – and even created a special vlog on the evening (true reporter instincts!) which you can watch below.

As well as his work with us, he loves drama and theatre, and enjoys being part of his church family.

Ben is passionate about his community, disability awareness, giving the voiceless a voice and seeing change for the most vulnerable.
