Description

Human Appeal will remember the anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing by attending the memorial service.


The attack at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, which claimed the lives of 22 people, shocked the world and saw the city and well-wishers around the world come together in solidarity against hate.


In this spirit, the city will mark the first anniversary of the attack on 22 May with a non-denominational civic memorial service at Manchester Cathedral. Invitations have been extended to bereaved families and first responders to reflect on the events of that terrible day and remember each of the 22 loved ones who lost their lives. This service will be by invitation only, but Human Appeal, which last year launched Muslims for Manchester campaign, raising funds for the victims of Manchester’s Arena, is calling everyone to come out on Tuesday 22nd May and joining our volunteers and team to commemorate the anniversary in the Cathedral gardens, which the memorial service at Manchester Cathedral would be live screened from 14:00 - 15:00.

Our team will be giving out water with messages of hope and join the city in solidarity.

Manchester City Council has released the memorial event programme as follow:

8am to 11pm - Trees of Hope will have volunteers on hand to hand out message tags

2pm to 3pm - A public screening of the private memorial service at Manchester Cathedral in Cathedral gardens
