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”.

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.

TOUR DE MANC 2020 HEADLINE CHARITIES
In 2020 the trustees nominated 2 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.
