We are a city that comes together to help each other when things get tough. It is at the very heart of what it means to be Mancunian. Now more than ever we must support each other. We Love Manchester is coordinating the Campaign to get money to the Manchester groups and charities responding to urgent community needs.

The Covid-19 pandemic presents a grave set of challenges for our city. There are hundreds of charities and community groups across Manchester who are taking action right now, to protect and support our most vulnerable neighbours. Our neighbours who are lonely, hungry, at risk or without a home need our help more than ever.

That's where we have an opportunity to come together and help.

These brave organisations need cash to continue to do their great work. If you're at home thinking about how you can help, please make a donation today. (We know many people are being hit financially by the crisis so please only give if you can afford to). We Love MCR has kick-started this Appeal by giving £350,000 to the Response Fund already.

Our Fund is now almost exhausted. Can you top up this Fund today?

We promise to get your gifts to the frontline immediately, by awarding cash grants to the local organisations doing this vital work.

We are supporting the Manchester Food Response Team - a partnership of local organisations and charities supported by volunteers who have come together to provide food to those who need it, as safely as possible. If you've received support from them and can afford to help others to get the same support then please donate today and write FOR FOOD in the message box when you donate.

And a huge heartfelt Mancunian thank-you to The Hut Group, who made an incredible £500,000 donation to the campaign on Thursday 2nd April. This immensely increases the scope of our support to communities and charities across Manchester. Read about their donation and other work here: https://bit.ly/2UXyiX8
