Regular, monthly donations really help us to plan our income and activity. And one-off gifts are very welcome too! Click here to see all the ways you can donate or pay in to the Charity and help us to carry on making a difference in Manchester. (Our online giving page will allow you to register for Gift Aid too, so if you’re a taxpayer, every £1 you give is worth £1.25 to us!)

Our Fundraising Team are always keen to hear from Volunteers. If you can help us with Collections, Events Delivery or Digital Communications Support, please email us email@example.com
or message us on Twitter @mcr_charity . Volunteering is a great way to get involved and to learn new skills.
We develop Mentoring programmes to match up young people seeking career, business and life guidance with volunteer Mentors. It’s a powerful and motivating way to give back to your city and to nurture young talent.
Let’s Get Your Heart Racing!…
Doing something challenging or out of your comfort zone is a great way to inspire people to sponsor you for your efforts. You may fancy an athletic event, or perhaps a mind-over-matter challenge is more up your street. Below are a few of our ideas, but please get in touch to discuss your own ideas too.
And don’t let the cost put you off…
At We Love MCR, we believe cost shouldn’t be a barrier to fundraising for us (and entering some big race events can cost £40 or more…) For some Manchester events we can provide FREE entry passes. And for other events, we’ll refund your entry costs (up to £50), so you don’t have to be out-of-pocket. If you’d like to request a refund on your event/challenge fee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07815 550631.
