We Love MCR Charity

Give a little, help a lot! We work alongside local charities to help raise awareness of their fund – through various marketing strategies and events.

Our chosen primary charity is the We Love MCR Charity whose main aim is to improve the lives and life chances of the people of Manchester.

Formerly known as the Lord Mayor of Manchester’s Charity Appeal Trust, it adopted the look and feel of the I Love Manchester campaign in October 2011 ‘because of its association with the positive action taken by residents and businesses’. Registered charity number 1066972.
