A whole host of North West charities are to benefit from significant five figure donations.
Manchester-based Red Sea Pedestrians, a charity which raises valuable funds for organisations throughout the region, celebrated its 10th anniversary by donating more than £100k to 10 charities.
Charities such as Wood Street Mission, The Toy Appeal, Park Lane School, Ronald McDonald House, Beechwood Cancer Care, Centre Point, Teenage Cancer Trust, Grace’s Place, Henshaws Society for the Blind, Manchester and Reuben’s Retreat all received the funds at a recent special anniversary event.
Trustees of Red Sea Pedestrians like to choose charities who they know will be close to everybody’s heart and whose need for support is the greatest.
Antony Wagman, chair of trustees of Red Sea Pedestrians, said: “There is no better way to celebrate the Red Sea Pedestrians’ significant milestone than to provide vital support for other local charities.
“Each year we receive tremendous support and generosity from our supporters, it is greatly appreciated and without their help and donations, we wouldn’t be able to assist fellow charities across the North West.
“For our 10th anniversary, we opted to do something different and help out 10 different organisations from across the region. It brings a smile to my face knowing that we’ve made significant donations to 10 charities, each of which is such a worthy cause.”
