Our homelessness appeal
Make a donation to tackle homelessness and enter our prize draw
Homelessness in Manchester is an issue that needs urgent attention, so we're running an appeal to raise vital funds for homelessness support network Street Support.
We're asking you to make a donation to Street Support (for a minimum of £5) and if you do, you'll immediately enter a prize draw to win some amazing goodies donated by participating breweries and venues from Manchester Beer Week.
To take part simply donate a minimum of £5 to Street Support's current appeal to fund a GROW trainee and quote 'MBW17' in the comment accompanying your donation. Once you've done this, you'll automatically be entered into our prize draw.

Street Support is a cause we really believe in. The organisation has a simple mission - to make it easier for people who are homeless to get the help they need. They also want to make it easier for support organisations to coordinate and collaborate and for citizens and businesses to do something to help.
Their current fundraising appeal aims to raise the money to employ someone with lived experience of homelessness as a GROW trainee. This role would see them work alongside Street Support, helping the organisations they work with, including Barnabus, Coffee4Craig, Booth Centre and many more. They will also connect to other people experiencing homelessness across the region to help develop a better understanding of what is working and what further help is needed.
So, please donate now and make sure to quote 'MBW17' in the comment accompanying your donation to stand a chance of winning one of our wonderful prizes.
The closing date for donations to enter the prize draw is August 20.
