In their second annual beer festival, Prestwich Beer Festival chose Forever Manchester as their chosen charity.

We turned up with our volunteers on what was a great weekend, filled with great ales, beers, lagers, ciders and wines (not forgetting the amazing hot dogs from Meet Frank) and we are overwhelmed that the weekend raised an incredible £1000 as well as a further £125 in our charity boxes that were scattered across the bar.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Siobhan Teader, the beer festival’s organiser for choosing us as their chosen charity as well as our Volunteers, Emma Slater, Emma Sutton, Katherin Sullivan and Paul Sullivan.

The monies raised will help to fund local people of Greater Manchester doing extraordinary things together.

So, cheers to you, Prestwich Beer Festival, here’s to another year!

If you’d like to support Forever Manchester at one of your events, or wish to volunteer with us please contact our Events and Volunteers Officer, Cheryl Hill via email on or call 0161 214 0940.
