Together - A group exhibition in aid of the Manchester Central Foodbank.

Remember the online creative raffle in 2020/21 when we raised £10k for Manchester Central Foodbank? This time we’re doing it in real life with a Group Exhibition at Seesaw Space.

The cost of living is making life hard for people we know and love. Last year 3 million people in the UK relied on a food bank to put food on their table. Right now, 1 in 5 people live below the poverty line.

It’s with this in mind that Caroline Dowsett has gathered 30+ Manchester-based artists have donated their work to help raise funds for people in Manchester who are living in crisis.

We’re selling raffle tickets for a chance to win original artworks - ceramics, wall hangings, paintings, prints, textiles and more - and giving 100% of the funds raised to Manchester Central Foodbank.

The Exhibition

Join us at Seesaw Space for a group exhibition where you can also make a food donation, buy a raffle ticket through the QR codes provided, and see the wonderful work that’s been donated to the fundraiser.

Exhibition Dates: 10th - 31st May 2024

Opening Night: 10th May, 6pm - 9pm

Exhibition Hours: Mon - Fri, 8:30am - 4pm

The Raffle

Tickets are £3 each. Every £3 you donate through the Just Giving Page pops one ticket in the draw hat for you. Enter as many times as you’d like!

The raffle shall go live on the evening of the 10th May at 6pm, with all artists names + their pieces.

Date for the prize draw: 31st May 2024


How will I know if I've won?

If you’re a winner, we’ll email you with the news + details about how we'll send you your prize. Don’t forget to give us your email when you make a donation.

If I can’t come to the exhibition, can I still enter the raffle?
