Manchester Pride Charity
Almost all charities and fundraising events come from humble beginnings and most share a common link, in that the reason they started was through necessity and the fact that someone or a community needed help. The story of Manchester Pride is no different.
Starting life as a simple fundraiser, activities marking LGBT+ life in Manchester began as a ‘bring and buy sale’ organised by a few bars and members of the gay community on an August bank holiday weekend. Their goal was to raise some much-needed money for AIDS organisations in the city who were dealing with the beginning of the epidemic.
Manchester merchandise that doesn’t cost the earth
All our I Love MCR® branded clothing is made from organic natural materials, using renewable energy, and everything we post is designed to be sent back to our factory when it’s worn out. The freepost code is printed on the label. We make new products from the material we recover. That means, not only does our Manchester merchandise not cost the earth but, tomorrow’s generation won’t be cleaning up your waste – they’ll be wearing it again, and again.
