Mustard Tree’s Round-Up

Run like the wind…

Welcome to another edition of Mustard Tree’s Round-Up!

National Storytelling Week

We love a good story, so to cap off National Storytelling Week – we want to share the experience of James – who came to Mustard Tree to build his confidence and find work. After three months on the Freedom Project, we secured a work placement for James at The Rug Seller in Trafford – you can read his story here.

If you know someone who is looking for an chance to get back into employment, or if you’re an employer wanting to provide an opportunity by offering a work placement – we’d love to hear from you by emailing information@mustardtree.org.uk or calling 0161 228 7331.

Great Manchester Run

Tokens are now LIVE for the Great Manchester Run – taking place on Sunday 22nd May, 2022. You can claim a free place for the Manchester 10k or half-marathon and participate in aid of Mustard Tree!

Mustard Tree runners before the 2021 Manchester 10k

We ask that each Manchester 10k runner aims to raise at least £100 in sponsorship, or £200 for the half-marathon – participants can set up their fundraising pages via our Great Run campaign page.

If you’d like to run for Mustard Tree in this year’s races, claim your free token by emailing information@mustardtree.org.uk.

Staycity Manchester Piccadilly

Thanks to our friends at Staycity Manchester Piccadilly, we have a dozen beautiful sofa beds for our Community Shops. The sofa beds will either be sold at low-cost to raise money for our charity, or gifted through our furniture voucher scheme (we gift 40% of furniture donations directly to those who need them).

If you’d like to find out more about our Community Shops, or donated your own pre-loved furniture, clothing or white goods, please take a look at this link.

The Great PPE Giveaway

We have a large supply of hand sanitiser, face visors and disposable gloves, free to a good home and can be collected from our Ancoats hub – please contact harry.dwan@mustardtree.org.uk or call 0161 228 7331 if interested.
