Charity Fundraising and Community Partnerships

Charity Fundraising

The students and staff of Manchester Health Academy participate in a wide range of community based fundraising events each year to help raise money for local, national and international charities each year.

Charities 2020 – 2021

This year we will continue to support the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

We also support other occasional charity events throughout the year, such as Rainbow Laces.

Current Projects:


Rainbow Laces Day Wednesday 9th December 2020.

The Academy, along with Manchester United Foundation Hub Officer, Lee Caldwell, will be taking part in Rainbow Laces Day

Why Rainbow Laces?

LGBT people are often made to feel unwelcome in sport, and Rainbow Laces aims to change that.

Rainbow Laces aims to make sure that everybody feels welcome within sport – whether they’re watching or taking part, whether they’re professional or playing in the park with their friends.

LGBT people and their allies wear Rainbow Laces and armbands to show their commitment to making sport everyone’s game

Students and staff are invited to wear rainbow shoe laces, or one rainbow accessory, along with their normal uniform, on the day (please no face paint or hair colours, and trainers are only allowed if your child is on their PE day). There is no need for students to bring money into the Academy, if you would like to, laces can be purchased online from Stonewall, which will benefit the charity.


Community Partnership

Manchester Health Academy is committed to engaging with the local community and actively pursues opportunities to develop working relationships with community organisations and local businesses.  We were delighted to be shortlisted for the Manchester Evening News Schools Awards Active Community Award previously.
