It may have been a while since our last news but rest assured we have been very busy behind the scenes of the gunnercooke foundation.
inspire* continues to grow from strength to strength with three new hub leaders and hubs being launched. We have also developed the project to include a greater range of events and support including 'Charity of the Month'.
We recently worked with Hands on London on their annual 'Wrap Up London' campaign, gunnercooke volunteers collected coats in tube stations which in turn are being donated to homeless people across London.
We're excited to be working with Salford Loaves and Fishes on their 'Donate a Christmas Lunch' campaign throughout December and giving them real, tangible support.
In addition for the season of giving we also have a number of charity Amazon wishlists which we will be actively promoting and encouraging our gunnercooke partners and staff to gift from, again helping our charity members and their service users directly.
We have huge plans for 2022 not least 'The House of Friends and Books', our first community book shop will open in Manchester city centre and we're looking to work with partners to address loneliness through a series of projects based out of the Bookshop. We're also looking for an innovative partner to run the cafe space.
Further projects include 'Business For Good' (BFG no less) and 'Star Turn'. More to follow on these!
