The Event

Cost of Living Community Shows with Denise Southworth & DJ Lascelles

A few months ago we secured funding of £19,831 from the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust (https://www.postcodeneighbourhoodtrust.org.uk) which is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery (https://www.postcodelottery.co.uk) and £3864 from the We Love MCR Charity (https://www.welovemcrcharity.org) to host cost of living community shows. We now have a partnership between Denise Southworth and Greater Manchester Law Centre for a weekly show throughout Black History Month on Fridays from 10-12 and between DJ Lascelles and the Citizen's Advice Manchester for a weekly show on Thursday mornings from 11-12.

Tune in and text or email your thoughts to help develop the shows throughout the month of October.

Our Blood, Our Lives - A Debate About Blood Donation

We recently secured funding of £9198 from NHS Blood and Transplant Community Grants Programme (https://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/how-you-can-help/get-involved/community-grants-programme) to host a series of 6 community shows discussing and debating all aspects of blood donation within Black communities. Each month 1300 Black donors are needed to save the lives of people with sickle cell, in childbirth, for emergencies, during surgery, in cancer treatments and for use in other medical conditions. There is also a big demand for rare subtypes that are more common in people of Black heritage.

Despite this only 2% of blood donors are of Black heritage and these shows will explore why there is this discrepancy between supply and demand and some of the reservations and fears that people have about giving blood. We will also hear from people whose lives depend on receiving blood. The shows will take an honest and in depth look at all perspectives and will include voices from all sides of the subject.

Manchester Caribbean Carnival 2023

The 12th and 13th August saw Manchester's Moss Side turned into an explosion of colour, culture and music!

Once again, the Manchester Carnival Together CIC team delivered an event that brought tens of thousands of people together to celebrate the music, culture and food of the Caribbean and the contribution that Manchester's Caribbean communities make to the city. This year was the second time that the full event was held since the pandemic and it just keeps getting bigger and better. With 7 stages, a myriad of stalls and a funfair, there was something for everyone.

Legacy DJs performed at different times during the two day event and brought our own flair to the event.

Well done to the carnival team - we're looking forward to being involved again next year!!
