“We’re incredibly excited to BEE on board. It will bring added life and energy to the city centre, connecting the wider community and showcasing all that is good about Manchester.”

“It will provide a massive boost for the local community, putting a smile on peoples’ faces whilst raising money for such a worthy cause, and rest assured we will be looking to add a bit of Virgin Trains fun to the celebration this summer.”
