Liquid raise £14,000 for Mustard Tree!
After an incredible year raising money and volunteering for our 2018 charity of the year, ‘Mustard Tree’, we are proud to have handed over a staggering £14,401!
Based in Manchester City Centre, Mustard Tree is a dedicated charity which supports individuals in changing their lives for the better. From securing better accommodation and economic wellbeing to learning new life skills, their aim is to tackle the causes and consequences of homelessness, while providing support and connections into employment. After seeing these issues first hand in Manchester City Centre, we voted for Mustard Tree as our charity of the year for 2018 and set ourselves a target to raise £5,000.
In October 2018, we held the first ever Liquid Charity Gala, which was a huge success. It was an eventful and fun-filled evening; from a very competitive auction to some amazing wins on our raffle, the Charity Gala contributed enormously to our final donation for Mustard Tree.
The amazing amount of money raised came from plenty of big spenders at our auction, with some of our employees bagging themselves a weekend stay in London, Salford City season tickets, signed Bolton Wanderers merchandise and an overnight stay in Liverpool!
Our partnership with Mustard Tree:
Liquid’s partnership with Mustard Tree throughout 2018 has been tremendously rewarding for us. Some of our employees regularly volunteered at Mustard Tree’s popular soup kitchen, which provides people with warmth, comfort and regular hot meals. Others held workshops on CV-writing skills and top interview techniques, to help improve the future prospects of those in need. The positive impact of volunteering has inspired some of our employees to continue to give their time throughout 2019, which is something we are extremely proud of.
Our donation will help 14 homeless and poverty-stricken people to secure accommodation, find new jobs and ultimately transform their lives, which is a result greater than we imagined. We are beyond happy to have made such a positive difference to Manchester’s homeless community, and we are sure that with our donation Mustard Tree will continue their positive and inspiring work and help change the lives of those in need for the better.
