Our Annual Birthday Bash sponsored by Metronet UK held at The Palace Hotel on Friday 5th February 2016 was a huge success!

Nearly 500 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 Chief Exec Nick Massey kicked off the night with a great speech talking about celebration, and how we all have the potential to be exceptional and how important it is to Forever Manchester to make people happy.

The night was a huge hit, with excellent talent from community groups and projects supported by donations from individuals and companies just like those in the room.

The Palace Hotel was a beautiful setting for our Birthday Bash and was thoroughly enjoyed. Keep your eyes peeled on our website for more information on exactly how much money we made on the night. We aimed to raise £40,000 and have already surpassed that thanks to the generosity of the people in attendance.

We’d like to thank our sponsors, which include; Metronet UK, Kyocera, Beever and Struthers, Manchester Building Society, Kellogg’s CDL, Express Solicitors, Tunafish Media, Weber Shandwick, The Barker Baker and AutoTrader. Thanks to the kind donations of these companies, we were able to put on a great night for our supporters to celebrate Forever Manchester as well as invite community groups to celebrate with us.

We would also like to congratulate the following winners:

  • Corporate Supporter of the Year – Express Solicitors
  • This is the Place Award – Sedgemoor Secret Flower and Bird Garden
  • Inspirational Community Group Award – The Miners Community Arts Centre
  • Captain Manchester Award – Krishna Patel
