We’re delighted that Peninsula Group has joined forces with our Charity to launch Making a Difference…Together. They have been wonderful supporters of our Charity over the years.   “This initiative will take our corporate fundraising to the next level and have what we hope will be a life-changing impact on children, families and the medical teams at our hospital who work tirelessly to support them.Allan Eves, Senior Manager for the Corporate Partnerships Team at Manchester Foundation Trust Charity

While some businesses have already joined the Making a Difference…Together, we are encouraging everyone to join in. Anyone wishing to be part of the scheme and have their fundraising matched by Peninsula Group can sign up on the charity's website.

he joy of Making a Difference…Together is that this money will not be ring-fenced for a specific project or ward, which means their medical teams can channel it to wherever it is needed most. “I encourage everyone to help us support this fantastic cause. Let’s spread the word to the business community. They don’t have to be Manchester-based to take part. This is a hospital which helps children from across the UK – not just those across the North West.Peter Done, CEO and Founder at Peninsula Group
