    Story

    @BeeStrongMCR want to help raise money to create a large mural in memory of the 22 victims of the tragic Manchester attacks.

    In the Manchester suburb of Monton we will create a piece of art made up of 22 bees on a large wall kindly donated by a local pizza company. We want to make a statement of our love, solidarity, condolence and defiance in response to the tragic event. Our vision will be brought to life by the hand of Manchester mural artist Qubek.

    So, we have a wall. We have an idea. And we have an incredibly talented artist.

    What we need is paint. A cherry picker. Two or three days. And plenty of support from our community. The money raised will cover the costs of producing the mural, and every penny left over will be donated to the British Red Cross #MCR appeal to support those affected.

    BeeStrongMCR aims to set up ‘Hives of Positivity’ by sending anyone and everyone our worker bee template which they can cut out, decorate with their well wishes and then add to the hives all across the city, or even make your own! They could pop-up in shop windows, classroom walls, lamp posts, front doors, even wheelie bins.

    We are hoping to have #HivesOfPositivity pop up all over the city of Manchester in the coming days and weeks. And through this we will create a space to share condolence, solidarity, kindness and love.

    The opportunity to create a mural has come as a result of this project. We see this as the chance to create another #HiveOfPositivty, just in a different medium. Something that will permanently reflect the thoughts and feelings of all of us in response to the attack. We hope you see this as a positive and worthwhile cause you can get behind.

    Any help, input or ideas of how to build and grow the project, and anyone who wants to be involved please email hello@marcgallanders.co.uk or follow (and share!) @BeeStrongMCR on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

      Here is a look at the wall where we hope the mural will cover. 22 bees will fill this space, in memory of the 22 people who tragically lost their lives in the Manchester attacks. The whole wall has kindly been donated for free by Pizza Knight, Monton.
