We have chosen to support two local charities; Forever Manchester and Maggie's Manchester. We donate to each charity as we think both charities are as deserving as one another, and provide invaluable support to the Greater Manchester community.
The first Maggie’s centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 when founder Maggie Keswick Jencks was prompted by her own personal diagnosis to set up a new kind of cancer care that wasn’t based inside a hospital, to make cancer patients feel more comfortable and offer them and their families support through difficult times. Since 1996, they have opened 29 centres both in the UK and abroad.
“Having the support of local businesses like Worker Bee is crucial to ensuring that Maggie's is here for people affected by cancer. It's also greatly motivating to know we're supported by the team at Worker Bee.” – Robin Muir, centre head of Maggie’s Manchester.
Every time you purchase a Worker Bee product, you are helping Maggie’s raise much needed funds.
Forever Manchester is the only charity that funds and supports community activities across Greater Manchester. The charity focuses its resources on grassroots projects such as sporting activities, environmental and educational projects and cancer support programmes to name just a few. They work to inspire and support local communities to work towards a happier and healthier future.
“The money raised by Worker Bee goes to help fund and support all types of community groups across Greater Manchester. [We] believe that connected communities make stronger happier communities, so they love activity that brings people together.” – Liz Page, marketing manager at Forever Manchester.
