Carmine Grimshaw

I was born in Ancoats in 1962, leaving school at the age of 16 with no formal qualifications I managed to get myself an apprenticeship with E. raffles & Co on Bradford road, then I gained my first licence as a street trader on Thomas street since then I  worked alongside my brother in the retail sector running a family business until about 11 years ago, during this time I was chair of the A-5 off licence pilot, a Scheme set up with MCC to bringing licensees up to date with new legislation and offering training aimed at prevention of sales to young people, through this work I was offered the opportunity to work for Manchester Leisure,sitting within the Positive Futures team, running their Truancy Programme, we provided sporting provision that helped social and emotional development of young people who were excluded from mainstream provision for one reason or another.

This work had positive impact on young people raising self confidence, throughout my time with the positive futures team, I coordinated alongside MCCs crime reduction team, activities for the respect programme that ran in Newton Heath and several other programmes of engagement with young people from hard to reach groups or marginalized young people to stop them getting involved in crime or a gang culture.

Anita Ryan was born and bred in Greater Manchester and is Manchester through and through. The Singer and Host has performed for some of Manchester’s elite including residency at Manchester United and events for Sir Alex Ferguson. Anita started as a singer from a young age and has been performing with family since she was a child. Her family are all performers so it was inevitable she was going to go down this road as a career.

As a Mum of two young children, Anita is the perfect example of how to master both a busy home life and a flourishing career. Her singing and hosting career is going from strength to strength and 2019 is looking to be her biggest and best year yet.

“To be asked to be an Ambassador for Team High Sherrif is an absolute honour. I will dedicate my time and experience to work with The High Sherrif to the best of my ability and I am proud to represent the wonderful city of Manchester and it’s amazing people.”
