It’s that time of year where we’re busy making arrangements and organising our annual Birthday Party which will take place on Friday 7th February 2020 at The Principal Manchester.

This year’s event, kindly sponsored by Express Solicitors, is extra special and celebrates Forever Manchester’s 30 years of supporting community activity across Greater Manchester.

The Forever Manchester Birthday Party brings together 500 passionate Greater Mancunians. It is always a huge hit, recognising and highlighting some brilliant local projects and showcasing the excellent talents of amazing community groups, all supported by Forever Manchester and its growing number of fantastic donors just like those in the room.

There are just a few birthday party sponsorship opportunities remaining including:

  • Entertainment Sponsor – £3,500. Your Company will be associated with some incredible acts including four community based performances, a headline performance from Tony Walsh and special guest DJ, Clint Boon. .
  • The Connecting Communities Award – £3,500. This award recognises the a group of local people who have formed a project or put on an activity which brings people together, benefitting others in their neighbourhood.
  • The Employee Engagement Award – £3,500. This is given in recognition of an employer that has encouraged and engaged with its staff team positively to contribute to Forever and local communities; enhancing employee opportunities by raising funds, donating time and resources, and helping to raise awareness of Forever Manchester.

Securing sponsorship not only enables us to deliver the birthday party event, it also enables us to invite around 100 representatives from the community groups across Greater Manchester who we are able to support throughout the year thanks to your kind support and donations.

Sponsoring an element of Forever Manchester’s birthday party provides a range of benefits including event tickets, the opportunity to support our local communities, getting your brand seen by a wide range of Greater Manchester businesses attending the event, mentions on a social media platforms with a reach of more than 25,000 people, and a presence at the event on the night.

As well as all of this, all our sponsors get to attend what is an enjoyable and inspiring evening that recognises and celebrates the fantastic work that goes on in our neighbourhoods to make them better places to live.

Sponsorship often provides a company with the opportunity to enhance brand loyalty as well as brand definition alongside the opportunity to reach a wider or different audience. It equally demonstrates your company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility and employee engagement, a factor becoming more important to both employers in terms of staff retention and employees as a differentiator when applying for jobs.

To take advantage of one of the remaining birthday party sponsorship opportunities listed below, please contact Jean Mills, Head of Business Development at Forever Manchester, on 0161 214 0940 or email jean@forevermanchester.com and let’s get this party started.


We’d love you to join us for this fantastic celebration of 30 years of funding and supporting community activity across Greater Manchester.

Bringing together over 500 passionate and dedicated Forever Manchester supporters, the evening will be in the format of a three-course meal with live performances from a selection of local community projects and an awards presentation, hosted by Manchester poet Tony Walsh. All this will be followed by a headline act and DJ set from Clint Boon, guaranteed to get you all on the dance floor and partying into the early hours.
