Beth Ashton wins social media award

Former Help Me Investigate Education contributor Beth Ashton has won an award for her work in the social media team at Trinity Mirror.

Beth wrote for Help Me Investigate Education in 2013 about a ‘leak’ that she stumbled across while investigating care homes.

She now works as Social Media Editor for the Manchester Evening News. It was her work on the newspaper’s campaign to raise money for Manchester Dogs’ Home that led to the award.

Beth accepted the award at a ceremony on Monday, at the Trinity Mirror Editorial Conference in Birmingham.
