Our annual Birthday Party, kindly sponsored by Express Solicitors and held at The Principal Manchester on Friday 10th February, was a huge success!

Nearly 400 passionate Greater Mancunians came together to celebrate another fantastic year of Forever Manchester supporting local people doing extraordinary things together in neighbourhoods across our region.

Our President, Phil Jones MBE, kicked off the night with a great speech and the night continued with excellent talent from community groups and projects, supported by donations from individuals and companies just like those in the room.

Keep your eyes peeled on our website early next week for the grand total raised, as well as photos and videos from the evening. Join us on our Facebook and Twitter pages to stay in the loop!
