A big thank you to everyone who came to Manchester Art Gallery for our Discover Your City fundraising Treasure Hunt!
The treasure hunt was a chance to see Manchester in a whole new way, deciphering clues about its history, learning about the influential Mancunians now immortalised in statues and exploring the city and its people through exciting challenges.
From humming the Coronation Street theme, to pie-collecting, to solving head scratching clues, everyone had a great time learning about our great city. And they helped to make the activities of Manchester Cares possible at the same time!
After three hours of dashing around the city solving clues, taking snaps and finding statues two teams emerged victorious. Congratulations to ‘Beehive Yourself’ and ‘The Amblers’ for a fantastic effort.
And a massive thankyou to our sponsors who helped to make the event possible; Pretty Little Thing and Tim Groom Architects.
And if you want to help make our programmes possible, then it couldn’t be easier. Just head to our donate page. And when just £20 can help to run each Social Club, everything raised will make a real and tangible difference to neighbours across the city.
Thank you to Kim by the Sea, Breakout Manchester and The Village Hotels, who each donated prizes.
And of course, it wouldn’t have been possible without the team of volunteers who made Discover Your City happen. Thanks to Sam, Matt and Sarah for their time, energy and passion to put on a great event and to help their neighbours feel more connected. If you’re interested in hosting an event, get in touch today!
