Out of chaos came creativity. I Love MCR was born from the strength of community during dark times. Since birth in 2011, Manchester people adopted the I Love (heart) MCR sign as a symbol of many things. Resilience; solidarity; defiance; and civic pride. It’s our duty to harness the energy of people and it’s our responsibility to mobilise communities. We come together as one and we will not be divided. Our heart’s in the right place. Manchester.
Give a little, help a lot! We work alongside local charities to help raise awareness of their fund – through various marketing and events. Our chosen primary charity is the We Love MCR Charity whose main aim is to improve the lives and life chances of the people of Manchester. Formerly known as the Lord Mayor of Manchester’s Charity Appeal Trust, it adopted the look and feel of the I Love Manchester campaign in October 2011 because of its association with the positive action taken by residents and businesses following disturbances in the city in 2011. Registered charity number 1066972.
The new I Love MCR App is the beating heart of the city, bringing people together. A community of people who care and want more out of the city. Put your finger on the pulse and get the best offers, experiences and events in Manchester – with rewards thrown in for good measure. Because you deserve more.
Our heart’s in the right place. Manchester. Is yours?
