Wow! News that the Annie Kenney Fundraiser put on by the Asian Business Leaders has brought in over £3,000 for the project is amazing!
We are now well on the way to our target and with a little push we will see a statue of Annie in our own Parliament Square. Very exciting and hopefully will inspire the next generation to stand up and change the world - or our little piece of it at least!
We had great speeches from Rubbi Bhogal-Wood from Wild and Form Digital, and Frank Rothwell from Manchester Cabins and even had the Sean Fielding the Council leader as the auctioneer!
Sincere thanks to Muzahid, Kash and Malik as well as background support from Martin and many, many others.
Great food provided by Wasim and the team at Cafe Lahore. Great photos from the event too 👍
We even made the paper: https://www.oldham-chronicle.co.uk/news-features/142/community-news/121797/business-leaders-do-their-bit-for-the-annie-kenney-project
