#BusinessOfTheWeek: Can you sing? Manchester

Posted on

Manchester’s biggest charity event is set to raise thousands of pounds for two very worthwhile causes. The ‘Can You Sing?’ event is being presented by future pro.manchester and thisisLDA and will feature eight ‘talented’ singers from the Manchester business world.

The eight brave singers will be hitting the stage at Revolucion de Cuba, Peter Street, on October 9th to show off their impressive vocal talents.  All eight singers will perform on the night, with the two who raise the most money by 9pm being put forward to the final, before battling it out for the ‘Can you Sing’ Manchester? title. One of the three competition judges will be Clint Boon, popular Xfm radio presenter. The charity competition is helping to raise funds for Francis House Children’s Hospice and Macmillan.

Francis House Children’s Hospice is a charity based in Manchester that cares for children with life threatening and life limiting conditions. Care is provided free of charge. Midshire has previously supported Francis House Children’s Hospice by completing the Midshire F72, a Guinness world record-breaking 72 hour football match. This event combined with Gala Dinner raised over £45,000. Our current ‘Hot Copiers’ calendar is also raising money for the charity.

Macmillan is cancer support charity, who specialise in providing medical, emotional and even financial support to those people suffering with cancer and their families.

The event is hoping to raise an incredibly impressive £50,000. They are well on their way to achieving the target, with £3,000 already being raised.

Midshire Sales Manager, Nick Rose will be taking part in the competition, and is hoping to repeat the success of the Midshire F72 event.

‘I’m really excited about the Can You Sing? event. Ultimately, we all want to raise a lot of money for these great charities. Tickets are on sale now, so make sure to come along.’

Nick is a current future pro.manchester board member, having being crowned Manchester Champion at the Made in Manchester Awards earlier this year.
