Leading low-carbon residential property developer Beech Holdings has announced Forever Manchester is its new chosen charity.
Many of the 132 Beech Holdings staff marked the start of the partnership by raising funds for the charity’s Caketober initiative.
After baking a fine selection of cakes and nibbles Forever Manchester mascot ‘Captain Manchester’ dropped by Beech Holdings’ company headquarters on Oxford Road.
Forever Manchester, which was founded in 1989, has awarded £36 million to community projects benefiting over 1.3m people in Greater Manchester.
Beech Holdings, the parent company of Beech Design & Build, Beech Properties and city centre lettings branch Manchester Apartments, revealed Caketober as the first of many Forever Manchester fundraisers over the next 12 months.
Andrew Cordwell, Managing Director of Beech Design & Build, said: “Our partnership with Forever Manchester couldn’t have started better,
“Forever Manchester is a charity that has existed to serve so many good causes for almost three decades. So when it came to choosing a new charity partner this year it ended up being quite straight forward.”
Nick Massey Forever Manchester’s chief executive, said: “It’s always great to work with companies like Beech Holdings which was established by a born and bred Mancunian and has a great presence in Manchester and, importantly, wants to give something back and make a difference in local communities. We’re looking forward to developing a great partnership.”
Beech Holdings Communications Manager Elise El Ouardi added: “We were thrilled to see how engaged all employees have been since Forever Manchester introduced itself to the business. The Caketober event has shown once again how eager we are to make a positive impact on our local community through raising money for our chosen charity.”
