As a company, we are absolutely committed to the idea of making great things happen. That means we go to the events, get behind the campaigns, and support the causes that we really care about. We’re lucky enough to work on many of them, but others appeal to our beliefs, priorities and aspirations. Take a look, we’d love you to get involved too…
Work that matters
Back in 2016, Cities of Hope brought sensational street art to the Northern Quarter and raised awareness and income for social causes at the same time. We are delighted to be part of the Cities of Hope team for 2018. Yet again, some of the biggest names in street art will be coming to Manchester to cast a new light on some of the most challenging issues of our time. So far we’ve supported Cities of Hope with a website and we’ll be putting together a promo film in the coming weeks. Check them out and support if you can.
It was an honour to be approached to be part of the ‘This is the Place’ book, a creative memorial in response to the attack on Manchester Arena in May 2017. The book, based around Tony Walsh’s poem, 'This is the Place’, brought the creative community of Manchester together to reflect on the tragedy. Each creative was given one line of the poem and the challenge of creating one page of the book. Every penny from the book sales will be split equally across three charities: Forever Manchester, We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and The Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund.
Our idea wouldn’t have been possible without the support of IPAF, which provided a cherry picker to capture the image of a heart of yellow umbrellas outside Manchester’s Central Library. Thank you to James Torry of Doodledo Motion for getting in touch and giving us the opportunity to mark the moment and to look forward with hope.
“Get yourself a copy of This is the Place. It's beautifully put together and is the perfect way to support some fantastic charities making a real difference in our city. Choose love Manchester."
The extent of food poverty in our city continues to shock us. Salford Food Bank is part of a nationwide network of food banks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. We wanted to help promote their work and offered to put a film together for them to showcase the vital support they give to local people in Salford.
Watch the film and support them if you can.
