Manchester City Council Residents’ Survey

Manchester City Council is conducting its summer/autumn 2014 residents’ survey to understand your views about the Council and your local area.

Your personal details and other information will only be used for the purposes of the survey and will not be disclosed to any third parties.

The information we collect will be used to inform the way the Council and its partners deliver its services and improve your local area.

Nelly Globe Charity

nelly globe

Nelly Globe is a national charity based in Levenshulme. The charity was founded in 2010 by Levenshulme’s own Darren Nicoll.

Following a serious illness, Darren realised that coming to terms with the trauma he and his family had been through was, in many ways, as difficult as the illness itself. During this time he kept creative journal which helped him adapt to life after cancer.

From this experience Nelly Globe was born.

The charity funds creative projects for people affected by trauma. Much of the money is raised through Nelly Globe’s now famous art auctions. The very first Art Auction in 2011 was held at POD deli. It was a massive success. Since then there has been an annual Manchester Auction, held at The Klondyke Club. Further auctions have taken place in Birmingham, Leeds and London. Funds raised have enabled Nelly Globe to devise and fund Journal projects with Callplus (a cancer charity), The Teenage Cancer Trust, The Stroke Association and have worked with YASP here in Levenshulme. Further projects are in discussion with The Alzeimers Society and Styal Prison.

This year’s Manchester Auction is being held at Odd Bar in Manchester on November 25th but Nelly Globe will never forget that Levy is where it all started. There will be some very exciting local events coming soon.

Feel the Spirit of Manchester at Levenshulme Market

Levenshulme Market is collaborating with The Spirit of Manchester Festival in the last two weeks of September to host some very special Spirit of Manchester Markets.

The markets will take place on Saturday 20th and Saturday 27th September and we have arranged to have a number of FREE stalls at each market available for community groups, organisations working in the community and charities. The stalls will allow them to showcase their work in the community to new audiences in whatever way they choose – from handing out flyers on their work and ways to get involved to demonstrations of the skills they are building amongst their users.

We are now looking for community groups to join us in celebrating what they do and raising awareness for any support they may need. If you are a group working in Manchester, or you know of a group or organisation you think should be represented please get in touch with us by emailing Full support will be given in helping to develop your ideas and making sure that you get the word out about the work you are doing.

This is in addition to the single free stall that Levenshulme Market offers every week to community groups working in Levenshulme – so if you’re working in the area but aren’t able to make the dates above please do still get in touch with us to find out how you can promote your work to our shoppers.

The Spirit of Manchester Festival is taking place from the 19th-28th September and is being co-ordinated by Manchester Community Central (MACC) as a celebration of the fantastic on-going work of the volunteer and community sector across the city.
