UPDATE: All of our Queens have now been adopted!
This Valentine's Day give your honey the gift of adoption and donate to a worthy cause! Will you bee a buzzing romantic?
Home to over 100,000 honey bees, The Printworks is offering a chance to adopt their very own Printworks bee in aid of the Booth Centre. For just £2 each, the newly adoptive parents will be able to name their bee and have their name(s) placed on a commemorative wall at the Printworks.
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.
The Booth Centre is committed to tackling homelessness by working alongside each and every individual who comes to the centre. We work with them to build on their skills and strengths to enable them to move off the streets, to develop a purpose, be that employment, education or positive social activities and to develop friendships which will support them in rebuilding their lives.
There is no limit to the number of bees you wish to adopt and it doesn't have to be just for your Valentine, it 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 Booth Centre.
