Power is the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behaviour of others or the course of events.
With charities being adversely affected by the ongoing pandemic, we remain resilient, and we want to show that we all are in this together.
To celebrate over ten years of championing community and charity across Greater Manchester, I Love MCR has decided to take our initiative and develop the most significant giving back to the community project in the history of the I Love MCR Charity Foundation.
Our ambition is to get people active, create awareness of the work charities do, and create the biggest fundraising legacy event the city has ever seen.
We selected ten charities – they gave us ten challenges – we identify the person through a public vote – we follow the journey – we celebrate the champions at an awards ceremony – taking place at the International Suite of the Manchester Mercure Hotel on 24th Nov 2022.
This means that money raised will go to support charities including Forever Manchester, Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity, and We Love MCR Charity as well as Brainwave, Cash For Kids, Wipe Your Tears, The Running Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, British Heart Foundation, and National Literacy Trust.
We’ll use your donations in the best way possible. For every £1 we spend, 80p goes directly to our beneficiary charities and making life change happen, and 20p goes towards fundraising and governance – keeping the big light on so we can continue to take action.
If you have the power to give something, you have a lot to gain…
