MANCSGIVING was founded by a group of like-minded South Manchester individuals to raise funds for a range of Manchester causes. Following the June 2017 terrorist atrocities at Manchester Arena, our inaugural event was dedicated to the support of those affected by the attack.

“For 8th July 2017 - our first ‘Mancsgiving Day’ - we attracted the support of countless local performers, all happily giving for free their talent, their time and their energy. It was a great day of words, music, poetry and dance all made possible by a brilliant group of volunteers dedicated to making it a resounding success.

Future events will be organised at The Carlton Club, Whalley Range, plus the group’s support will be available for other Manchester based organisations who are looking to stage their own MANCSGIVING type of events in the months and years ahead.
