Firewalk fundraiser returns with a bang!

On January 25th, the only firewalk to ever take place in Manchester city centre returned in style.

70 brave ‘soles’ took the unique opportunity to walk on two lanes of fire in St. Ann’s Square, with a thumping live drum soundtrack. An unforgettable experience which raised over £26,000 for our work with Manchester's communities and young people.

Rising Star returns home with pro contract!

Now, after 3 years of our support, she's achieved her dream of playing pro basketball in her hometown!
