We’ve had plenty of busi-bees flying around Greater Manchester helping to raise awareness, signing up to support us and fundraising for us this month.

We’d like to say nice one to the following companies and people…

First of all, pro-manchester donated four tickets for four of the lovely Forever Manchester team to attend The Big Social Media Conference, which really helped out with some new strategies and free hints and tips!

Manchester Arena also donated 50 tickets for people in communities across Greater Manchester to attend Key 103 Summer Live as well as £250 as part of their staff ticketing initiative.

Our Corporate Lunch, sponsored by Barclays took place on Wednesday 8th July in Cloud 23 at the Hilton Hotel, and Verdure kindly allowed us to borrow some beautiful centre pieces for the tables on the day.

At our Corporate Lunch, we also announced our Annual Birthday Bash, taking place on Friday 5th February 2016 at The Palace Hotel. Sponsorship opportunities are available, and we’d like to say a massive thanks to Metronet UK who have kicked things off and have become the headline sponsor for the second year in a row.

Huge thank yous go to the 70 Corporate Partners who attended our lunch. A great afternoon was had by all, with inspirational speeches from Chief Exec, Nick Massey, President, Phil Jones and Barclays’ Director, Wealth and Investment Management Steve Renfrew.

We’ve also signed up three brand new bees, who are buzzing to be on board. Massive thanks goes to Boss Model Management, Tunafish Media and Allied Irish Bank who are our newest Corporate Partners, helping us to raise £1m to benefit communities across Greater Manchester.
