Our 25th birthday wouldn’t have come together without the hard work and generous donations of various people months before and on the day itself.

20th February saw us host our 25th birthday at The Midland Hotel, which brought together nearly 400 Greater Mancunians who support what we do here at Forever Manchester.

Such a huge event would not have come together without every individual that helped us either free of charge or at a reduced cost.

Forever Manchester would like to thank:

  • Mark and Kat at Giraffe Event Creations who created our fabulous centre pieces and were a massive help on the night.
  • Ambassador and Owner of So Beautiful Events, Susie Bell, who was the Production Manager on the night and ensured that the presentation ran smoothly on the night.
  • Rachel Bell, Ambassador and Director of Love at Manchester Million supporters theEword, who was our Events and Volunteers Officer Cheryl’s right hand man on the day and throughout the organisation process.
  • PR Consultant, Emma James who was involved in the event from start to finish and secured some great raffle prizes.
  • Rebecca Molloy, who organised the volunteers.
  • Adi Thomas of Verdure Floral Designwho donated the candelabras in the centre of the tables.
