We are excited to announce that this year’s charity will be Pennine Care Charitable Foundation.

Our charity focuses on supporting worthwhile causes for our communities, services users and staff, which go beyond the core NHS offer. This could include supporting community based groups, staff development projects or enhancing the therapeutic environments that are accessed by our service users and their families.

Every single donation we receive is important to us and the charity works hard to ensure that the funds we raise are used to have a positive impact on the communities we serve.

We’re proud to provide mental health and learning disability services to people across Greater Manchester.

We serve a population of 1.3 million and our vision is a happier and more hopeful life for everyone in our communities.

More than 4000 dedicated and skilled staff deliver care from around 200 different locations in five boroughs:
