Spirit of Manchester Supporters

By becoming a supporter of our Spirit of Manchester programme, you can be part of celebrating and rewarding Manchester's local voluntary andWe support Spirit of Manchester 2018 community groups for all their hard work throughout the year. It's through the generosity of supporters that we will make every year of the Spirit of Manchester programme better than the last and help ensure the awards continue in future.

The Spirit of Manchester is the result of the combined efforts of lots of individuals all across the city who are making this a great place to live, work and enjoy life. So we do our work in the same way: everyone can bring something to the party!

Macc’s role is to nurture and develop the work of the voluntary sector in the city, an important part of what we’re trying to achieve in running these awards is to build the relationships between local businesses and voluntary organisations – so we would love to see lots of supporters giving whatever they can: money is always welcome but we especially like creative ideas which are about who you are, what you do and which connect people. So if you’re a café owner, you could give us a free lunch to raffle or offer to host an event for a local group. If you’re a marketing business, you could offer to design a free leaflet or poster for one of our winners. If you want to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.

If you would like to get involved please contact us on 0161 834 9823 or email: cheryl@macc.org.uk. Click here to see a list of our supporters so far this year.
