HideOut’s holds first event Founder Patrons Dinner.

On Thursday 16th September, HideOut held it’s first ever Founder Patrons Dinner with over 80 of our generous supporters attending the celebration.

The dinner brought all of HideOut’s amazing patrons together, and featured a fantastic three course meal, made in house by our Catering Supervisor Donna, and her team.

The event was hosted by our fantastic young member Aliyah, and showcased the talents of the young people through dance, rap, singing and spoken word poetry. Young people also led tours of the building, welcomed guests and served food. The night really does show what young people can achieve when provided with opportunities to showcase their talents.

We will also had guest speakers in the form of our Capital Donor Fred Done and Founder Patrons Paul Shannon and Theo Paphitis, with the latter providing a video message for guests on the night.

On behalf of our staff team, trustees and most importantly the young people, we wanted to say a huge thank you to those who attended and for your continued support for HideOut Youth Zone.

Your incredible commitment is critical to our success and ensures that we are able to continue to open our doors with a first-class offer for the young people of Manchester.
