…… TOUR DE MANC USES CYCLING AS A FORCE FOR GOOD IN GREATER MANCHESTER
Tour de Manc has no employees and everything is done on a voluntary basis. We provide significant funds for Greater Manchester charities, projects and good causes and you will often see this twitter tag on our posts #all4charity
Our driving principles are to “make a difference to the lives of Manc people”, “encourage cycling for health” and “be inclusive”.
THE TOUR DE MANC CHARITABLE TRUST IS INDEPENDENT OF THE TOUR DE MANC NOT FOR PROFIT COMPANY
All the surpluses/notional profits from our activities are transferred to the Tour de Manc (TDM) Charitable Trust, where their experienced Trustees decide on headline charities, projects and good causes and the amounts to be dispersed. These headline charities, projects and good causes are carefully selected by our team of trustees, who are also cyclists, considering applications/requests from the good causes themselves, following the charities' funding policy.
In the autumn of each year the trustees of the charitable trust fund will meet and formally agree which Manc headline charities, projects and good causes will benefit from our funds.
Forever Manchester £1000
Forever Manchester £2000
Forever Manchester £2500
Booth Centre £2500
Booth Centre £5000
Willow Wood £400
Seashell Trust £3500
As well as the headline charities and partner charities, Tour de Manc encourages all riders to raise funds through sponsorship – supporting their own causes directly. We know that the following charities have received funds as a result of riders fundraising through our events:
