Manchester’s Printworks has launched a new Adopt a Bee campaign to raise funds for Greater Manchester communities.

The fundraising campaign in support of Forever Manchester will give donors the opportunity to adopt a bee from the 100,000 honey bees on the Printworks‘ rooftop garden.

The Printworks houses four beehives which each home to 30,000 – 40,000 bees.  It has previously raised money for charities Forever Manchester, The Booth Centre and Volition through selling jars of its hard-working bee’s honey.

For just £2 each or £25 for one of its four Queen Bees, bee-come an adoptive parent or gift to the honey in your life.

Adam Jackson, Marketing Manager at Printworks, said: “It’s been a tough time for everyone, but especially so for our underprivileged communities in Greater Manchester who have been hit hardest by local lockdown restrictions. With the country now in its third lockdown, we want to help lift everyone’s spirits. With the bee such an iconic symbol in Manchester, we wanted to give Mancunians the chance to adopt their own or give their loved ones a unique gift that also helps our local community when they need it most.”

Bees can be adopted through The Printworks’ website.
