September community events

 

This September has been packed full of community events spread throughout Manchester. One of our ambassadors, Isla, family & co, decided to host several events for us to raise awareness for Children Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM).

We also had a good samaritan, Craig, who saw one of our collection tin’s emptied and dumped in the back streets Manchester. He turned a bad situation to a good one, and we are thankful for his efforts in helping Kidscan out!

Craig Griffiths contacted us after seeing a post on “Mint Manchester“ about a Kidscan charity box which had been stolen, emptied and dumped in a back street of Manchester. Craig said,

“It was such a shame that somebody was desperate enough to have done this, it broke my heart when I realised who they had stolen from. There were a lot of negative comments about the person who did this, but that wasn’t helping anyone.

I decided to try and make this sad situation a little bit better by doing something positive. I set up a go fund me page to show the true spirit of the people of Manchester. I could only hope that the generous nature of the real Mancunians out there might have gone a little way to reimbursing what was lost, not only the money but also to restore this wonderful charities trust and faith in the generous people of Manchester.”

The team at Kidscan are blown away by the kindness from Craig and the wonderful who have donated – we have no doubt that the people of Manchester are simply the best!! This support has raised £75.50!
