New JCI Manchester Charity Partners Announced
As we embark upon a new 2 year relationship with our 3, yes 3, new nominated charities we decided to look back over the past 2 years and the difference all our members have made.
Over 2013 and 2014 JCI Manchester supported 2 local Manchester charities, Francis House and Forever Manchester raising a total of £8,230.64. There were many exciting events along the way including: a thai cookery lesson, a cocktail masterclass, a quiz, a BBQ, a netball tournament, a comedy night, Tough Mudder, the Great Manchester Run and even a Sky dive, not to mention a handful of raffle’s along the way.
It has been a pleasure and an honour to work with and support Francis House and Forever Manchester, but we think you’ll agree that our next 3 nominated charities are equally worthy causes. So without further ado we would like to introduce to you, Challenge 4 Change, Medequip 4 Kids and Action Against Hunger. With our 3 eager charity directors this year, Charlotte Brinsley, Emma Cottam and Simon Anderson, there is no doubt there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in our charitable activities and raise some much needed funds. We have all sorts of social, sporting and competitive events planned, so watch this space. Our first charity event being on 22nd April 2015, a Rum Emporium, hosted at the wonderful Manchester House, the invites have been sent and this event we are sure will be quick to sell out so ensure you sign up now.
Finally, a huge thank you to all our members for your continued support over the last couple of years. We cannot wait to share the new adventures of JCI Manchester 2015 and all the exciting events the team have planned.
