Manchester charity event secures Corrie legend
A Manchester-themed charity event is being held to raise money for charity, featuring a mystery Corrie legend on the decks.
Mankety Manc has been organised by Manchester specialist search marketing agency theEword; all profits go to Forever Manchester, the fundraising campaign from the Community Foundation for Greater Manchester. Partygoers will get the chance to have their photos taken with a mystery legend from Coronation Street – who will be DJing – and also several Manchester celebrity lookalikes, including Judy Finnegan, Carlos Tevez and Hilda Ogden. Fancy dress is optional, but there will be a prize on offer for the best Manchester celebrity costume.
Several more prizes will be up for grabs in the Mankety Manc raffle, including great gifts from the Holiday Inn Express on Oxford Road in Manchester, Manchester-based company, Brother UK, and Mancunian fashion retailer, Bench.
Al Mackin, CEO at theEword and a Forever Manchester ambassador, said: “Forever Manchester makes a huge difference to Manchester people’s lives and we’re delighted to be able to support this work with Mankety Manc. Our aim is to help a great cause, celebrate the best of Manchester and have lots of fun into the bargain.”
Mankety Manc takes place at the English Lounge, High Street, Northern Quarter, M4 1EA from 8pm to 1am on Friday, 23 March 2012. Tickets are priced at just 3 pounds. For more information, or to buy tickets, please visit http://www.manketymanc.co.uk/
