There are many people to thank and I’ll thank them all. But for now I’d like to thank Tom Bloxham MBE as representative of all givers. Tom once ran a market stall and sold fire extinguishers door to door. He’s co-director and co-founder of Urban Splash. He gave one thousand pounds to The Christmas Dinner. Tom chairs the Manchester International Festival and is a trustee of The Tate, Manchester United Foundation and is also Chancellor of The University of Manchester. Tom was awarded an MBE for services to architecture and urban regeneration. The Christmas dinner Crowdfunder ends in four days. There are outlook and hideout festival VIP tickets to pledge for.
