The Renaissance Manchester have kick started their 2015 fundraising early by raising £352.

The City Centre hotel has chosen Forever Manchester as its Charity of the Year for 2015 and their first donation has come in thanks to a raffle at their staff party on 18th January.

The 4* hotel, which received a Certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor in 2014 is hoping to raise tonnes of cash for us this year, and we may even try to rope them into our abseil or sky dive too!

Having Forever Manchester as their Charity of the Year means throughout 2015, the hotel will be raising money, which will directly contribute to the surrounding areas of where it stands on Blackfriars Street in Manchester City Centre.

Every penny raised for Forever Manchester stays in the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester to enable us to encourage local people doing extraordinary things.

If your business would like to support us and make us your Charity of the Year, please contact Jean Mills on or call 0161 214 0940.
