Weʼre raising £10,000 to Raise funds for Manchester Tattoo Trust
- Manchester, UK
- 0 minutes to go
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Manchester Tattoo Trust was set up after the devastating terror attack on 22 May 2017 at Ariana Grande’s concert at the MEN Arena where 22 people were killed, and many were seriously injured.
The day after the attack tattoo artist Sam Barber reached out to fellow studios and artists in Manchester to collaborate in raising money to help those affected.
On the weekend of 28th May 2017 studios and artists, not only in Manchester, but across the globe tattooed the iconic Manchester Bee on thousands of people wanting to pay their respects and help in the fundraising.
The response from studios, artists and the general public was outstanding and truly humbling, and the money being raised is still growing. It truly shows what a community can do when they pull together.
So far, we have managed to help young people suffering severe mental trauma from the attack start on their path to recovery. We are funding Climbing Out* in their work to help rehabilitate young people present on 22 May by taking them out on residential trips to build confidence, talk about their experiences and meet new people. We will be adding the full story to the website soon!
We have many things in the works in our efforts to continue to help young people and with your support we can achieve great things for our people and city!
