Manchester's Worker Bee: Christmas gifts to support our city

Here are the Christmas gifts that also do good - for everyone who loves Manchester! Time to ask Santa for your Bee treats…

We Love MCR Charity works with great partners who are officially licensed* to use the iconic original Manchester Worker Bee design – and they make a donation every time they sell a Worker Bee item.

Here are some ideas for delighting your Manchester-mad friends, and treating yourself...

*Any other products featuring the worker bee have not been licensed for charitable use by Manchester City Council.


Manchester Central Library - assorted worker bee gifts

Our neighbours have got Manchester Worker Bee stationery, badges, mugs, T-shirts and more in their St. Peter's Square location, and their online shop is full of stocking fillers starting from only £1.50!


Ollie and Fred - luxury Worker Bee scarves

Ollie and Fred offer these must-have accessories, based on the original mosaic designs in Manchester Town Hall from the 1800's! Large and small sizes are offered, with a generous 20% of profits being donated to We Love MCR Charity.


Grass & Air - Manchester Bee Kids’ Brollies

Perfect for little Mancunians on wet winter days! Head to Grass & Air's website to buy these


Hand-set Worker Bee artworks, shining with stunning Swarowski crystals. A unique and beautiful addition to any Manchester-loving home.


Finally, not Bee related, but something with Manchester through and through is the #ColourInMCR Colouring Book!

We Love MCR supporter Shiraz Anwar, proud Manc and talented photographer, has created a digital colouring book packed with Manchester landmarks to be coloured in.

With every sale of his £10 book, he gives us £5, for the work we’re doing in the city that he loves as much as we do. If you wish to purchase it as a physical copy, this can only be done as a bulk order. Get in touch for more info.

So that’s your proper Manc Christmas sorted! And if you do give any of these gifts, please share pictures of them with us on our socials:
