A festive look through the archives of one of Manchester’s oldest charities which has been helping families at
Christmas time since the 1870s. Includes a tour of Wood Street Mission’s historic building off Deansgate and community Christmas Shop!
This event has been specially commissioned by Green Badge tour guide Suzanne Hindle, who has researched our archives held at the John Rylands Library.
The event begins at Wood Street Mission's building at 6pm, mulled wine and light refreshments will be provided.
This is part of a series of heritage focused activities the charity is undertaking to raise awareness about child poverty today in the run up to its 150th Anniversary in 2019.
The event is free, but we ask guests to consider making a donation to Wood Street Mission's Christmas Appeal at https://www.justgiving.com/woodstreetmission
