FoodnFilm, a unique networking event that combines great people with food and film, brought together Manchester’s finest business talent to celebrate its inaugural award ceremony – ‘The Naffies’ – a night of awards and fundraising for Forever Manchester.
The idea behind ‘The Naffies’ was to fundraise for Forever Manchester and to create a fun and different take on a red-carpet event.
The ‘Naffies’ was held at Lock91 and saw the crème de la crème of networking talent turn out in their finery to strut their stuff along the red carpet to see who would win the hotly anticipated accolades.
The business awards went to:
Rising Star – Ben Wild, What Marketing
Best Networker – Liz Fox, RSM Tenon & Marketing Meets
Best Moment – Roger Longden There Be Giants
Best Dressed – Bharat Bhandari, BCA Accountants & Gemma Rolstone, Delphinium Business Coaching
Scott Hadden, founder of FoodnFilm and ambassador of Forever Manchester said:
“After celebrating our first-year anniversary we really wanted to take the time to thank and celebrate all the people who have supported us over the last 12 months. Films are always celebrated with awards, so we thought ‘why not create our own’ and so ‘The Naffies’ were born.
“Everyone had so much fun and really celebrated the evening the way we hoped for while raising an amazing amount of money for Forever Manchester.”
The film winners on the evening were:
Best movie – Logan
Best Acting Performance – Gary Oldman
Best Soundtrack – Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Naffist Scene – The entirety of 50 shades freed
Supporters of the evening also included Cheryl hill who helped run the event, What Marketing for filming the entire evening and Andy Russell for photographing the entire event with Julie Houghton.
