An amazing night was had by all at Forever Manchester’s 30th Birthday Party, with £78,689 being raised for Forever Manchester to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.
Over 400 passionate and dedicated supporters came together at the Principal Manchester to celebrate 30 years of Forever Manchester helping local people doing extraordinary things in their local communities. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that contributed to a truly entertaining and inspirational night.
The event was kindly sponsored by Express Solicitors.
Hosted by Tony Walsh and Captain Manchester, the Birthday Party, featured first class entertainment from four community groups who are part of the Forever Manchester movement:
- The Manchester School of Samba
- Carly Ryan
- Mature Movers
- The Brew Chimp Boys
Clint Boon then finished the night with a DJ set which got everyone up and dancing until the early hours.
The Birthday Party also acknowledged the impressive achievements from local community groups as well as the efforts and contributions by local businesses who support Forever Manchester. So huge congratulations to our deserved award winners:
- Can Survive – Community Group of the year, sponsored by CDL.
- Friends of Grosvenor Park – Connecting Communities Award.
- Auto Trader – Business Supporter of the Year Award, sponsored by Seventy7.
- Oscar Technology – Employee Engagement Award.
- Sandy Lindsay MBE– Captain Manchester Award, sponsored by Auto Trader.
