With both charity and food bank donations down by 50% due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, at a time when these donations are needed more than ever, a group of Manchester artists have come together to launch a raffle to raise much-needed funds for Manchester Central Foodbank.
Artist Caroline Dowsett has encouraged over 30 Manchester-based artists to donate their work to raise funds for families and people struggling to get by.
They’re selling raffle tickets for a chance to win original artworks, books, prints and more – with 100% of the funds raised going directly to the foodbank itself.
