DYT Choir Triumphs with Community Project Award on International Women’s Day 2024

In a heartwarming celebration of community spirit and empowerment, DYT Choir has been honoured with a prestigious Community Project Award on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2024. This significant accolade was presented during a memorable event organised by Nadia Ali, the CEO of Make a Difference community group, dedicated to nurturing understanding and collaboration amongst the diverse communities within Greater Manchester.

Held at the illustrious Hardcastle Suite in Edgeley Park, Stockport, the award ceremony was a vibrant confluence of fun, dance, laughter, and inspiring stories that highlighted the essence of women supporting women. The event underscored the vital importance of solidarity, mutual upliftment, and the relentless pursuit of equality and safety for women in all walks of life.

A host of distinguished guest speakers graced the occasion, adding depth and perspective to the celebrations. Among them were Dame Robina Shah DBE, Jan Bennett, Bernard Kivel, Simone Callaghan, and Sally Mcferran, each sharing profound insights and stirring narratives that resonated with the theme of International Women’s Day.

"I'm absolutely blown away that DYT Choir won this award. I honestly thought that we weren't going to win as we were in a different category to the one we were originally nominated for. It made my day when I heard DYT Choir announced as the winner of the Community Project Award and I couldn't be prouder of my team and all the choir members."

The festivities were further enhanced by a delicious buffet lunch, setting the stage for the much-anticipated award ceremony. The atmosphere was electric with anticipation as the awards were announced. When DYT Choir was revealed as the winner of the Community Project Award, there was a palpable sense of joy and surprise, especially for Liz, who accepted the award on behalf of the choir. Liz’s reaction was one of overwhelming pride and humility, as she took the moment to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone who had supported the choir’s journey to this remarkable achievement.

The DYT Choir’s triumph is not just a recognition of their musical talent but also a testament to their commitment to fostering community spirit and promoting inclusivity through their art. This award highlights the choir’s role in using music as a powerful medium to bridge gaps, bring people together, and create a harmonious environment that celebrates diversity and encourages mutual respect.

The Make a Difference community group’s decision to honour DYT Choir on International Women’s Day underscores the significance of community-led initiatives in driving social change and advancing the cause of women’s empowerment. It is a reminder that every action, no matter how small, contributes to the larger goal of creating a more equitable and supportive society.

As the DYT Choir continues to inspire and unite people through their performances, their achievement serves as a beacon of hope and a call to action for communities everywhere to come together and make a difference in the lives of those around them. The award is not just a recognition of their past efforts but a motivation to continue their valuable work, spreading joy and fostering understanding through the universal language of music.
