Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity appeals for organisations to sign-up as corporate supporters for its annual ‘1,000 Beds for Christmas’ campaign

Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity will soon launch its Christmas campaign – 1,000 Beds for Christmas. The campaign will help fund at least 1,000 nights of accommodation and wraparound support for people rough sleeping in Greater Manchester, as part of the Charity’s flagship ‘A Bed Every Night’ (ABEN) scheme. Corporate supporters are being invited to join the campaign and work alongside the Charity to raise as many funds as possible, helping to prevent homelessness this winter. 

The Corporate opportunities available this year include becoming an ABEN Supporter, an ABEN Umbrella Supporter, an ABEN Matched Funder, or simply signing up to ‘Give What You Can’.

Each of the above opportunities comes with a full package of brandPR and engagement opportunities, to make sure that both the charity and the supporting business get the most out of the partnership. The ABEN Matched Funder package can be tailored to the supporting organisation’s unique needs.
