Bring in the New Year with Manchester Cares - December and January Virtual Social Clubs

As if we've made it all the way to December! (PHEW!). 😓 Our Community Network have come through so much this year and we're so proud of all of our neighbours, younger and older, for finding the light and fun in every situation - whether that be at Virtual Social Clubs or through weekly chats on Phone a Friend.

We appreciate the joy and laughter that you have brought to every corner of this year. 💫 From unreal innuendos and giggles at our Drag Queen Glitterball, to monthly Pub Quiz's with Ged, as well as many more, there's been plenty of reasons to smile every month, and it's all down to our network.

...Of course, we want to go out with a bang and there's still a few festive clubs lined up for our final week, as well as a sparkling party on NYE. (As well as all the fun clubs we have lined up for the New Year!) Check out everything we've got going on below, we'd love to see you to say t'ra to 2020 and a Merry Christmas! If you haven't already, join us as a volunteer at
