Henshaws Society for Blind People

Henshaw’s Hopes For Record Donations at Manchester Beer and Cider Festival 2015

Henshaw’s Society for Blind People, the official charity of this year’s Manchester Beer and Cider Festival is hoping that generous attendees will help them raise even more money than they did at last year’s festival, when donations reached £2,750.

Henshaws Society for Blind People

One of the oldest charities in the UK, serving Manchester for nearly 200 years, Henshaws is a specialist charity which offers a crucial lifeline to all those affected by sight loss within Greater Manchester and beyond. They provide expert support, advice and training and help hundreds of visually impaired and disabled people each year to develop the skills and independence they need to lead lives that are as full and independent as possible.

The Beer Festival’s chosen charity is given a promotional stall and free rein to collect loose change from customers at the event which is expected to attract in excess of 12,000 visitors. They will also be promoted on the festival website, posters, flyers and in the festival programme.

For more on the work done by Henshaw’s Society for Blind People, see their website at henshaws.org.uk. And don’t forget to bring plenty of spare change when you come along to the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival, January 21st – 24th at the Velodrome.
