Salford Shopping Centre have been searching for local superstars
Last month, Salford Shopping Centre invited the local community via a social media appeal to nominate someone that they felt was of importance in the Salford area.
Nick Pitt, Salford Shopping Centre manager, said: “It is always great to showcase the many wonderful individuals, services and businesses in the area. The community spirit here in Salford is very close and integrated, so we wanted to do something to acknowledge and celebrate this”.
David and Helen Wyatt, who work at St Paul’s Church in Salford, were picked by majority of the local community and won the title of ‘Salford Superstar’.
The opportunity was to acknowledge all the local people who enhance the lives of those around them with the winner receiving a £50 voucher.
David and Helen Wyatt said: “We are absolutely thrilled and grateful to have been chosen . We are always looking for ways to connect with the community including providing shelter and food to the homeless, clothes and guidance to whoever needs the help”.
David noted that the voucher will go towards buying supplies for the community garden at the church which they hope to have revamped by the summer.
