We are delighted to welcome national pharmacy chain, Well Pharmacy, as the first headline sponsor, and official ‘Health and Wellbeing Partner’ for Bee in the City.
Manchester City Centre was treated to a dazzling preview when the golden chrome ‘Au’ bee toured key locations across the city, stopping off in Castlefield to meet the team at Well Pharmacy.
Lynn Krige, CFO at Well said:
“Bee in the City is such an important and inspiring event to be part of. It celebrates everything that is great about Manchester, encouraging new people to visit the city, and local residents to explore like a tourist. With clear benefits in terms of driving tourism to the region; providing a fun, free, active and educational day out for families; and raising funds for very worthy causes close to our hearts, like We Love Manchester, why wouldn’t you want to get involved?”
“As Health and Wellbeing Partner, we’ll be encouraging trail-goers to get active and stay well through our pedometer on the app, and other healthy initiatives to improve wellbeing on route”.
“Our whole organisation is getting involved in the exciting programme of activity, and one of our artistic colleagues, Jennifer Pye, is even co-designing one of our two giant bees!”
Wild in Art Director, Sally-Ann Wilkinson, comments
“Our golden ‘Au’ honey bee caused a huge stir in Manchester City Centre on Friday. The sun came out for the beautiful concept so it really shone, bringing some spring time sparkle, and reflecting just a few of the beautiful locations which will be home to the Bee in the City trail.”
‘We are completely delighted to have Well Pharmacy on board as Bee in the City’s Health and Wellbeing partner.It is a brilliant partnership as their values fit perfectly with the ethos of the trail.’
