Forever Manchester is delighted to announce that we have able to support 212 Christmas Get Together’s over the festive season.

This Christmas, thanks to your fantastic support, we have been able to give out £42,200 towards Christmas Get Togethers that will bring together over 10,000 people in communities across Greater Manchester.

We believe that connected communities make stronger, happier communities and love any event that brings people together, so we’re delighted to offer our support to people who wish to celebrate where they live with a Christmas gathering!

In less than two weeks of promoting this funding initiative we received 516 applications to host a Christmas gathering. Due to the number of applications massively exceeding the amount we had available to give out, a lucky dip draw was held, and the successful applicants were randomly selected.

We have emailed all applicants to inform them whether they have been successful or not. Funding of £200 has now been transferred to the successful applications to assist in the planning of their activity throughout December. Successful applicants will also receive a little treat in the post too!

This level of support has only been made possible thanks to generous donations and fundraising efforts of our supporters throughout the year.

So, whether you are a company or an individual, with your generosity and support we can continue to help Greater Manchester’s communities become even greater, and hopefully support even more people next year!
