Opportunities to donate to First Generation campaign

First Generation will help bright, young people, from backgrounds that do not usually enter higher education, to secure an undergraduate place at Manchester Metropolitan and then provide continued financial, professional and personal support throughout their studies and into employment.

Your loose change is making a difference

Staff, students and visitors are supporting First Generation by dropping their loose change in to our on-campus campaign collection boxes. It all adds up – to date, over £300 has been donated! Thank you for your support!

Great Manchester Run

Alumni and Development wishes all our ‘orange’ #McrMetProud runners good luck! If you are running in aid of First Generation, thank you for choosing to support the campaign.  Staff and friends will be there to cheer you on.
