We were delighted that friends, family, clients and colleagues joined us to celebrate our fifth birthday, which took place at The Foundry, Manchester on September 18.

From clients who believed from us from the start of our journey and continue to do so – including Nichola Howard, director of Launch Events North West, Emma Smith and Phil McEvoy of Six Degrees and Dave Haynes, chief executive of Age UK Salford – to individuals whose projects have been incredible to work on – including releasing zombies in city centres with our credit union clients and turning young women from every borough of Greater Manchester into modern day suffragists with the Tandem Theatre GameChangers project – the room was full of people who have made the last 5 years an incredible adventure.

As well as plenty of fantastic company, pizza and prosecco, the night involved a ‘Sup’, where good causes pitched to the room – massive congratulations to Tony Openshaw from Out In The City and Natalie Yates-Bolton from Little Lady Locks for being crowned joint winners of the cash prize.

Thank you to everybody who has shown their love and support for our work – and to our amazing team of associates who help us to deliver it.
