Story

**All of our Queen Bees have now been adopted! They have been adopted by Joe Donlan, who has named his 'BeeMoreJude', Di and Lynn who named their Queen Bee 'The Change', Rosa Taylor who named her Queen 'BeeBee' and Mark Seal, who named his Queen 'SealyBee'.

Home to over 100,000 honey bees, The Printworks is offering a chance to adopt their very own Printworks bee in aid of Volition. For just £2 each the newly adoptive parents will be able to name their bee and have their name(s) placed on a commemorative window at Volition which is based at Manchester Cathedral.

The bee is an iconic symbol in Manchester so we wanted to give people the chance of adopting their own, whilst raising money for a special cause.

Volition Manchester is the Manchester Cathedral's volunteer programme, who help put job seekers back into work. They help create a structured pathway to support them back into work, including work-related training, mock interviews and mentoring through their award winning Employer Partnership scheme. For more details go to their website at volitioncommunity.org

There is no limit to the number of bees you wish to adopt and can be on behalf of a family member or friend. Simply donate a minimum of £2 per bee and in the comments note what you wish to name the bee, along with the name of the adoptive parent(s) if not yourself.

We also have FOUR Queen Bees up for adoption at £25 per Queen. It is first-come-first-serve for the Queens so make sure they have a well deserved name/title. As for the honey bees, I'm sure we have more than enough. So please help us raise money for Volition.
