First Generation campaign update

Transforming lives

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.


Congratulations to all the #McrMetProud who ran last Sunday! It was wonderful to see so many staff, students, graduates and friends come round that corner towards our cheer spot! Well done!

A special thank you to those who ran in aid of First Generation, thanks to your efforts and the generosity of your supporters, nearly £460 was donated to support young people who are the first in their family to consider university.


There are plenty more challenges coming up in the next few months across the region. If you haven’t got a charity in mind, why not run in aid of First Generation?

Don’t fancy running, there are many activities that students, staff, alumni and friends can organise to raise money, visit our JustGiving page to donate or find out about how you can fundraise.
