Operation Fundraiser has distributed £70,000 raised from Manchester Pride 2006 to LGBT and HIV good causes throughout Greater Manchester. David and I went to Manchest Pride this year in London (dont ever book with laterooms.com - they CANCELLED our apartment reservation PAID FOR with credit card WITH NO NOTICE). Despite finding ourselves in the haeart of Manchester on the busiest day of the year, with no accommodation, we did manage to find an (EXPENSIVE) apartment on Princes Street right opposite the gay village.
This years money raised at Pride has been distributed to help HIV and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender charities in Greater Manchester. Operation Fundraiser, the community fundraising venture and joint initiative between Lesbian and Gay Foundation and George House Trust raised a total of £70,000 at Manchester’s annual ten-day festival celebrating LGBT life in August 2006.
