Sharston man Junior is Stagecoach champion
Stagecoach Manchester employee Junior Grant was awarded the Silver Community Champion award at the annual Stagecoach Champions Awards.
Junior, from Sharston, has over 38 years’ service with Stagecoach Manchester, and was commended for playing an active role in the Moss Side community. In addition, Junior assists with the Message Trust, which is a Christian charity working to improve the lives of young people, as well as providing the Remembrance services at the depot’s War Memorial.
Junior received a trophy, cash prize and a two night stay in London incorporating the award ceremony.
The event was also attended by TV personality Jessica Wright, who presented winners with their awards. Earlier this year, Jessica took part in a campaign to celebrate the style of Stagecoach’s bus passengers across the UK.
Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Elisabeth Tasker, said: “I’d like to congratulate Junior for his award and specifically for the decades of hard work he has put in to serve and improve his local communities. Junior’s award is proof that the invaluable activities he undertakes, both in and out of work, do not go unnoticed and he continues to be a testament to Stagecoach Manchester.”
