Miki was born in Oldham in 1978 and has always lived in the North of Manchester. She has 2 children and is the manager of several shops within Afflecks in the Northern Quarter, most prolifically, The Manchester shop, home of Manc and Proud.

The Manchester shop has recently started selling Forever Manchester Merchandise and their supporting artists work with all of the income going straight to us.

She told us: “I enjoy my job immensely, not only working in the retail sector but also managing a team of people that I consider family.”

Miki added that she wants to help Forever Manchester grow in her role as Ambassador: “I feel i could be helpful increasing awareness of your charity. We have a huge amount of passing trade through our shop and our market stalls, if we can engage those people to become aware of what Forever Manchester does it could be a great difference.”
