TOUR DE MANC CHARITIES AND FUNDRAISING

…… 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”.

All the surpluses/notional profits from our activities are transferred into a charitable trust account for disbursement to the headline charities, projects and good causes. These headline charities, projects and good causes are carefully selected by our team of trustees, considering applications/requests from the good causes themselves.

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. For 2019, the trustees have decided that Forever Manchester will be replaced by Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital as one of our 3 headline charities.

TOUR DE MANC 2018 HEADLINE CHARITIES
In 2018 the trustees nominated 3 headline charities as follows:

ROYAL MANCHESTER CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CHARITY

ROYAL MANCHESTER CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CHARITY

The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital charity is about making a difference to the thousands of children the hospital sees every year. By supporting projects that provide state-of-the-art and specialised equipment we help improve the diagnosis and treatment of children. We also support research that can help us to better understand children’s illnesses and provide the treatments of the future and we support projects that help to create a more child friendly environment.

Charity registration number 1049274

THE HAEMATOLOGY AND TRANSPLANT SUPPORT CHARITY (HATS)

THE HAEMATOLOGY AND TRANSPLANT SUPPORT CHARITY (HATS)

HaTS is a cancer patient support charity. Its overriding objective is to provide and improve upon the support and care provided to patients and families undergoing treatment for blood cancers at the Haematology and Transplant Units (HTDU and PTW), situated in The Christie Hospital. Originally known as ALUPAL, the organisation is celebrating 31 years of existence in 2017.

HaTS helps patients and their families overcome some of the day to day challenges they encounter when faced with life threatening illnesses and long periods of isolation. HaTS recognises that sometimes patients and their carers/families need that little extra support which is often outside of the NHS resources. The funds raised by HaTS are used to provide financial assistance to those patients and carers experiencing difficulties. The funds also help to improve the service provided on the unit, for example, providing complementary therapies to help with the physical and emotional effects experienced as a result of a cancer diagnosis. The charity also pays for the little things, such as individual newspapers for patients in isolation and bigger items, such as specialist adjustable chairs.

THE BOOTH CENTRE

THE BOOTH CENTRE

The Booth Centre is here to bring about positive change in the lives of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and help them plan for and realise a better future. Everyone needs a safe place to call home, positive relationships and a purpose in life.

The Booth Centre help by providing advice to find accommodation, education, training and help to secure employment, free healthy meals, support in tackling issues with health and addiction, and creative activities to boost confidence and self-esteem. We are facing very challenging times with homelessness and rough sleeping on the increase. The Booth Centre has 20 years of experience in helping people to break the cycle of homelessness.
