We are delighted to announce that Manchester Building Society will be sponsoring the Employee Engagement Award at our annual Birthday Party, taking place on Friday 9th February 2018 at The Principal Manchester.

Our annual Birthday Party, kindly sponsored by Express Solicitors, will celebrate another great year of supporting community activity across Greater Manchester. The event brings together over 400 passionate and dedicated Forever Manchester supporters to celebrate another great year of helping local people do extraordinary things together.


The Employee Engagement award is in recognition of an employer that has encouraged and engaged with its staff positively to contribute to Forever Manchester and local communities; enhancing employee opportunities by raising funds, donating time and resources and helping to raise awareness of Forever Manchester. The Employee Engagement award at this year’s Birthday will be sponsored by Manchester Building Society.

Formed in 1922, Manchester Building Society has a long history of providing sound financial products. As a mutual, they are owned by and operated for their members, and they believe their mutuality enables them to offer high levels of service. They operate a streamlined organisation, based in the heart of Manchester with a network of agencies. Because of this they are able to keep their costs to a minimum and pass on the benefits to their members. They are a long-standing supporter of Forever Manchester and make regular, generous donations as well as fundraising for us.

Gail Worthington of Manchester Building Society said: “We have supported Forever Manchester for a number of years. As a Manchester-based organisation we firmly believe in ensuring we make a positive impact in the community where many of our staff and customers live and work. Supporting Forever Manchester allows us to do this.”


Guests at the Forever Manchester Birthday Party will be treated to a welcome drink on arrival, three-course meal, entertainment from community groups Forever Manchester has funded, an awards ceremony and a special guest DJ.
