Forever Manchester was delighted to support 201 Christmas Get Togethers over the 2019 festive season.
Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and individuals, we were able to provide £40,200 towards Christmas Get Togethers that brought together over 10,000 people in communities across Greater Manchester.
Forever Manchester believes that connected communities make stronger, happier communities so we were happy to support people who wish to celebrate where they live with a Christmas gathering.
The feedback from the Christmas Get Togethers was very heartwarming and we’re glad you all had a great time. Here are some of the highlights:
Our customers @StockportHomes Temporary Accommodation and Sheltered Housing had a wonderful Christmas lunch at Offerton Community Centre this Monday.
