The Printworks, Manchester’s well-loved entertainment complex, are supporting Volition by allowing adults and children alike to adopt a bee from one of their hives!
Their roof is home to over 100,00 honey bees, all of who can be adopted. For a minimum of £2 each, the newly adoptive parents are able to name their bee and have their name(s) placed on a commemorative window in the Manchester Cathedral Visitors Centre.
All money raised will support Volition and allow us to help people get back in to work through our structured programme. Thank you to The Printworks team for choosing Volition as your charity, and a huge thank you to everybody who has adopted a bee so far.
To adopt a bee, please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/pwadoptabeevolition
