Forever Manchester is delighted to have been selected as TATTU and Gusto Manchester’s Charity of the Month this December.

TATTU’s unique venue takes customers on a visual journey across three separate areas, drawing influence from different styles of body art. Inspired by restaurants found in America’s West Coast, when you enter this venue its clear just why it’s fast becoming on of Manchester’s favourites. We recommend the dim sum!

TATTU will also host the next Forever Manchester Women event this coming January, which tickets are still available for.

Jess Cumpstey, TATTU’s Brand Manager said: “After being an Ambassador for a couple of years I’m proud of the work FM does. Now working at TATTU myself and the owners wanted to give back to Manchester as a thank you for embracing us in the first year of being open. As a business we have chosen FM as our Christmas charity for the great work it does. Manchester is in mine and all of our hearts. Giving  back to the city and spreading awareness of the charity is the best way we can think of saying thank you for the ongoing support we receive.”

Gusto Manchester, based on Lloyd Street, just off Deansgate in the classic, ornate Elliott House this year raised money by creating the Manchester Martini cocktail, inspired by the flavours of Vimto with a little gin thrown in for good measure.

Gusto Manchester is the newest of the Gusto sub-brand within Living Ventures. The restaurant’s decor hints towards the 1920’s and Manchester’s local heritage combined with tall ceilings, a grand island bar, a private dining room and a collection of seating areas. Look out for the exceptional painting on the wall, paying homage to some of our favourite Mancs!

Gusto Manchester has now continued with its support by choosing to support Forever Manchester throughout December, one of their busiest months of the year.

Tara Donelon, Gusto Manchester’s Business Development Manager said: “Here at Gusto charity is always in our minds and helping the community surrounding our Restaurant. Forever Manchester is a fantastic charity providing help, support and services in our City to those who really need it, so that’s why this December we are adding a £1 on our bills to raise funds for Forever Manchester”

We are very pleased that both of these restaurants have decided to support Forever Manchester this Christmas. Other restaurants, such as The Alchemist and Australasia have chosen to support Forever Manchester in December in the past, with both raising over £600, thanks to the kindness of their diners.

A discretionary charge of £1 will be added to each bill throughout December at both restaurants, with every penny coming to Forever Manchester.

So, if you’re in Manchester City Centre this Christmas, be sure to pop into both restaurants. You’ll be guaranteed great food, a great atmosphere and you’ll be doing your bit for charity too!
