Socially distant but virtually together
Like nearly all charities we have had to postpone our public fundraising events and activities. But although lockdown might be keeping us apart it doesn't mean that we can't join together.
From running a Zoom quiz to taking on a daily challenge, you can make a difference with the Together Trust. If you have an idea for a virtual fundraising activity we'd love to hear from you!

Virtual collection tin
Since lockdown, our supporters haven't been able to put their loose change into one of our collection tins found in many local businesses across Greater Manchester.
On average each collection tin raises £25 for the Together Trust. That can pay for food hamper for a care leaver or family that uses one of our services or for a box of sensory items that are used by our speech and language therapists.
If you'd like to raise money for the Together Trust without ever leaving your house get in touch to set up a virtual collection tin today!
