On 22 May 2017, a bomb exploded at Manchester Arena killing 22 people and injuring many more. Following the attack, people from all around the world donated money to show their love, support, and solidarity.
The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund was established on 26 May 2017 to coordinate, administer and distribute the various monies donated in response to the attack. On 30 May 2017, the Fund formally became a registered charity (Charity Number 1173260) with the Charity Commission.
11 months on from those tragic events that unfolded we have decided to host a Swimathon to help raise money for all those still affected and recovering from the attack. It is our hope and aim to raise £300 for the fund, an amount that may not seem huge but is certain to help those affected.
The event will take place on Saturday 14th of April at the North City Family and Fitness Centre from 3 pm onwards, Show your support of the event and charity by signing up to swim or even just donating every penny truly does help.
Thank you on behalf of the We Lv MCR Swimathon team.
