Support creativity in the community, help repair our roof, in Manchester it never rains….it pours!
The Miners Arts and Music Center is a charitable social club on a working class estate in North Manchester. Built in the 1890’s as a wash-house/social centre for Miner’s working at a nearby pit, it had been left derelict and neglected for many years. A small group of dedicated community members began its restoration in 2011, they have made great progress but the work still continues.
We need £5000 to repair the roof. this will enable us to provide better and dryer facilities for community groups, organisations and creative people who rely on our centre. Support creativity in the community, pledge your support.
