After 9 days of fundraising fun, Forever Manchester Week 2017 has drawn to a close. From across the city and beyond, businesses, individuals and families came together in the spirit of Manchester to support Forever Manchester's important work.
At Realm, we took part in a variety of different activities and events to show our support. From working out with Captain Manchester to designing and bringing to life our very own bee, Bee-am Gallagher, we’ve had a fantastic time fundraising for our favourite charity (despite finishing fifth in the Big Forever Manchester Quiz of the Year).
On Friday morning our fundraising came to a head when three of the more energetic members of the Realm team collectively walked more than 35 miles to work. Travelling from New Mills, Lymm and the city centre by foot to our Altrincham office, Duane, Chris and Joe walked for more than 11 hours before the start of the working day. Arriving at Realm HQ completely exhausted after their mammoth commutes, the trio helped to bring in the lion’s share of our fundraising total.
All in all, the week was a resounding success and altogether at Realm, we raised more than £280 for Forever Manchester. However, it’s not too late to donate and support the Realm team, visit our Just Giving page to show your support.
