We're delighted that Cheadle-based lender Together has announced it will be donating £180,000 to our work at We Love MCR Charity! The donation will be used to both upgrade Wythenshawe Park and to support local community projects.
£150,000 of the donation will be dedicated to revamping Wythenshawe Park over a number of years, with an aim of providing safe, fun outdoor space for children of all abilities to enjoy.
The remaining £30,000 will be used to bolster our Stronger Communities Fund, which Together wish to support to protect and improve even more open spaces. The donation has already supported brilliant projects throughout the city, including community allotments, a green residential alley way project and a children’s gardening club. This donation is the start of a long-term partnership between ourselves and Together, which we couldn't be happier about!
Marc Goldberg, CEO Sales & Distribution said:
"I am truly proud of our partnership with We Love MCR Charity, it is perfect for Together. Collaboratively, we will be able to really provide something longstanding for many to benefit from. It will be great to see how this project evolves and how our colleagues can play their part through the volunteering opportunities it will provide."
Cllr Yasmine Dar, The Lord Mayor of Manchester and our Chair of Trustees, added:
"As the Chair of We Love MCR Charity, we are thrilled to receive this generous donation from Together! This contribution will empower We Love MCR to enhance accessibility at Wythenshawe Park and bolster Manchester's vibrant community groups in their efforts to revitalize local green spaces. Our ability to make a difference centre on the funds we can secure, and this partnership with Together marks a thrilling step towards making our remarkable city even more extraordinary’
