The 2017/2018 Annual Review podcast recaps another fantastic year in the world of Forever Manchester!
It recaps a year made possible because hundreds of individuals and businesses supported Forever Manchester by raising money to support our local communities through supporting Greater Manchester's most exciting charity.
As a result of all that support, belief, commitment and effort, Forever Manchester has been able to award more than £1.5m in awards funding, together with hundreds of hours of advice and support that helped more than 1,000 grassroots community projects and brought benefit to more than 100,000 people.
So if you have made a donation, took part in Captain Manchester's Magical Tombola, baked a cake, cycled, bought some Forever Manchester merchandise, dressed up, dress down, kicked a football, fell out of a plane or attended one of many Forever Manchester activities during the past 12 monts, we would like to say Cheers, Nice One & thanks a lot.
Hosted by Terry Snowden & Jen Edmondson, we hope you enjoy listening to this review of 2017/18 which kicks off in early 2017 and concludes with Forever Manchester's nnual Birthday Party in February 2018.
This review features some of the wonderful fundraising events throughout the year including Captain Manchester's Magical Tombola, Forever Manchester Women events, the celebrity packed Mirror Ball, Running, Cycling and Boxing Challenges, Forever Manchester Week and Caketober as well as Comedy and Poetry Nights.
It also features details of the various types of funding provided by Forever Manchester plus mentions of the growing number of Businesses Partners and Ambassadors who continuously do their bit to help raise both funds for, and the profile of Forever Manchester.
It also features our Summer & Christmas Great Get Together initiatives that brought "miles of smiles" to people right across Greater Manchester, we chat about how Tony Walsh's 'This Is The Place' poem inspired those who cared enough to act and we round off with some of the highlights from Forever Manchester's incredible annual Birthday Party!
