Manchester Beer Week has joined forces with Forever Manchester to raise money for a series of good causes during the city-wide beer festival.

The community foundation, which supports a wide range of grassroots projects across Greater Manchester, has been nominated as Manchester Beer Week's chosen charity.

Both organisations will work together to host events and initiatives designed to raise awareness and money for community projects, including the launch of a very special beer.

This year's Manchester Beer Week coincides with Forever Manchester Week, which runs from June 10 to June 17 and aims to inspire Mancunians to take part in eight days of creative fundraising activity. So keep an eye out for joint events that combine good beer with good causes.

"The partnership with Forever Manchester made complete sense to us," said Manchester Beer Week organiser Connor Murphy. "Not only does a strange twist of fate mean Forever Manchester Week coincides with Manchester Beer Week, but both organisations are focused on championing Manchester and raising awareness about the city's fantastic people.

"We're really excited to work with them to bring a charitable aspect to the Beer Week and give drinkers the chance to dig deep to support valuable community projects that benefit a wide range of people across Greater Manchester's 10 boroughs."
