Manchester Beer & Cider
Festival 2015

Yesterday, Tami and I attended the final day of the Manchester Beer & Cider Festival 2015, held at the National Cycling Centre (Velodrome) in Manchester, in support of Henshaws Society for Blind People.

I sold programmes and raffle tickets, collected empty beer and cider glasses which added an additional £3 per glass to the total funds raised, and also gave an overview of Henshaws and the services they provide to interested attendees of the festival!

I attended the event last year, again as a volunteer, which helped to raise much-needed funds for Manchester's oldest charity; providing services, support and life skills to other visually impaired and disabled people like me.

I'm sure we've done even better with our fundraising this year, as Tami was the star of the show! She really attracted the crowds, had lots of fusses and even received a small bag of treats from one of the staff members working at the Velodrome!

I want to say a big thank you to everyone who donated to our buckets throughout the 4 day event. You have helped in making a massive difference to those supported by Henshaws!
