We are proud to support our small local charities, these organisations do fantastic work with our communities and often take the place of the traditional support networks when funding gets cut for local authorities. The bulk of our charity budget gets allocated to two local charities, Manchester Central Foodbank on Oxford Road and the Pankhurst Centre Foodbank, both do amazing  and absolutely vital work with the local community and for the most part staffed by volunteers.
