Our homelessness appeal

THanks for your support!

Thanks to your amazing support, we managed to raise £1,750 for homelessness support network Street Support.

We received £750 in individual contributions so, in order to reward your generosity, we have also provided a £1,000 contribution on behalf of Manchester Beer Week. We are very serious about having a positive impact on the community around us and homelessness is an issue that needs urgent attention.

As part of the fundraising drive, people who donated a minimum of £5 were automatically entered into a prize draw to win some amazing goodies donated by participating breweries and venues from Manchester Beer Week.

Not all of you provided full contact details when leaving your donations, so if you have not heard from us and see your name on the list of winners below, please get in touch to verify your identity.
