Our Chosen Charity


At every AGM our members nominate and vote for a local Manchester Charity to support for the year through our monthly raffle and charity collections. 

For 2019/20 we've voted to support Wood Street Mission. Wood Street Mission is a children’s charity helping children and families living on a low income in Manchester and Salford.

They provide practical help to help meet children’s day-to-day needs and improve their life chances. Through Family Basics we provide struggling families with children’s clothes, bedding and baby equipment, and toys and books which are important for children’s wellbeing and development. You can learn more about them, and how to get involved, here: https://www.woodstreetmission.org.uk/

If you would like to help and can donate a prize for our monthly meeting charity raffle please get in touch at manchesterwi@gmail.com


For our monthly meetings (not a euphemism), we have an ongoing call for donations of sanitary products to donate to  local organisations and food banks that help to tackle period poverty across Greater Manchester.

Every Month, a registered charity, tackling period poverty across Greater Manchester, is one of the organisations who receive our donations. 


They create and distribute packs of menstrual products to food banks and over services for people living in poverty. Each month, we ask members and guests to donate sanitary towels and tampons .
