Each month, we will be providing you with the opportunity to get to know our Patrons a little better.
Patrons are a group of individuals and companies united by a determination to give young people in Manchester somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. Patrons form part of an exclusive group who share the vision to transform the lives of thousands of young people in Manchester.
This month, we want to introduce you to TOGETHER.
What is Together?
Together are property finance specialists. They provide finance to a wide variety of customers including homebuyers, investors, property professionals, landlords and small businesses.
Together works with a vast network of intermediaries such as brokers, accountants, solicitors, banks and financial advisors to support their clients with the finance they need.
Together has over 600 employees and is based in Cheadle, Stockport.
The business prides itself on the expertise of its staff and a common sense approach to lending.
Having traded successfully for more than 47 years, they have firmly established themselves as a leading specialist lender, and are continuing to expand as they meet the growing demand for alternative finance.
How do they support HideOut Youth Zone?
Together do a lot of stewardship with HideOut. Most recently, they did a podcast with two of HideOut’s Senior Club members: ‘What Manchester Taught Me (You can listen to the podcast here). Commercial CEO, Marc Goldberg, came to the Youth Zone to inspire young people by telling his story of how he started as an apprentice and became CEO.
Together are planning to volunteer at HideOut’s Holiday Club in Easter, and again in Summer. They will also be working with HideOut’s Employability and Enterprise Coordinator to lead a number of money awareness workshops.
The Together team will also be running the Great Manchester Run in May to raise vital funds for our young people.
Marc Goldberg, Commercial CEO of Together
“We have worked with HideOut since they opened two years ago, and are proud to be a founder patron providing a yearly donation to its ongoing running. We have worked alongside them through an extensive volunteer programme, and encourage our colleagues to get involved in holiday clubs and delivering employability workshops.
“Now more than ever, it is essential to support them through the rising cost of living, which is why we have donated the funds for 750 hot lunches to be provided at their holiday clubs.
