The Printworks Manchester breaking records for The Christie

The Printworks, Manchester has reached its huge fundraising target, securing a whopping £100,000 for The Christie.

 

Over the last four years The Printworks has been dedicated to raising vital funds for The Christie with its annual Manchester Soul Festival, which takes place over the August bank holiday weekend.

 

This year's Soul Festival was bigger than ever before, with over 48,500 people coming together to get their groove on for the biggest Northern Soul event of the year, and raised what turned out to be a record-breaking amount!

 

We said back in August that we would hit it before the year is out - and we were true to our word!

 

To reach its courageous target of £100,000, The Printworks subsequently hosted a series of live music events, with one off gigs in the Pump Yard by favourite acts including Stax of Soul and Special Brew, in a bid to top up the funds raised on Sunday 26th August.

 

Fred Booth, centre director of The Printworks, said: "We are incredibly proud to have raised such a huge amount for a cause close to our hearts. We said back in August that we would hit it before the year is out - and we were true to our word!"

 

Jennifer Kent, Community Fundraising Coordinator at The Christie, said "What an unbelievable fundraising total! We are so thankful to The Printworks and The Manchester Soul Festival committee, as well as all of the supporters, for the huge efforts over the years. Our charity provides enhanced services over and above what the NHS funds and this money will make a huge difference to our patients."
