This month at Worker Bee, we’d like to take the opportunity to introduce our proud charity partner, Forever Manchester, and the incredible work they do.
Founded in 1989, Forever Manchester’s mission has been quite simple: to strengthen local communities through grassroots projects and to put a smile back on peoples’ faces. They are the only charity that funds inspiring community activities of all sizes across Greater Manchester.
No project is too small for the humbling folks over at Forever Manchester, who take on the seemingly impossible task of listening to the stories of individuals and groups alike; after all, how can we look after the bigger picture without first addressing the individual lives that make it up?
Forever Manchester fund over 1,000 community projects a year! In the last 30 years, they have raised over £38 million for local communities, directly benefitting the lives of 1.1 million people. To put that into context, Forever Manchester have helped community actions within one mile of your home or business if it’s in Greater Manchester.
Here at Worker Bee, we share this ethos when it comes to our tea and coffee. We recognise the important role they play in bringing people together, making big changes through little moments. Each one of our products is named after a historical Manchester mill and pays homage to the hardworking industrial past of our city. We also acknowledge the work we must now do to rebuild and revitalise many communities that have been forgotten about and become disenfranchised within these busy modern times.
Worker Bee is dedicated to the idea of giving back and Forever Manchester, being so effective in local communities and reliant on donations, seemed like a perfect choice of partner. Since we started in April 2017, we have donated 5% of all our tea and coffee sales to the charity, thus far totalling £1,200. We aim to strengthen our relationship with the charity and there's always room for improvement when it comes to how much we can give to them…but we need your help.
So many stories of community successes begin over a hot drink and a chat. It is important to cherish the relationships and conversations you have over a cuppa, as you never know just where they may lead. All we’re asking you to do is get out there and choose Worker Bee as your go-to brew, knowing that you’re making a difference with every sip.
