We would like to say a huge thank you to Scott Fletcher and Kathy Fletcher on choosing to receive donations for Forever Manchester in lieu of presents at their recent wedding.

They raised a magnificent £2,070 for Forever Manchester, which was generously given by guests and well-wishers. All of the money raised will be used to continue to support and fund community activity across Greater Manchester.

Prior to their wedding they informed guests that: “We have been fortunate to benefit in life and love. The greatest gift we can receive are your continued friendship and your presence at our wedding. As a result, we have chosen not to register for wedding gifts. Your attendance on our special day is truly all that we could ever ask for. However, if you are considering a gift, we encourage you to commemorate our wedding with a donation to a charity very close to our hearts, one that we actively support as we believe the positive impact this charity has in Manchester is invaluable”.

Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, memorials and any other special occasion provide an great opportunity to those who want to give something back to to the communities where they live, work and love.

By choosing Forever Manchester as your charity of chose, we guarantee that every penny you raise will be reinvested back into our local communities helping to make them be happier, healthier and safer to be.
