Manchester Aid to Kosovo (Mak) is a charity set up in 1999 to support recovery in Kosovo, and is closely intertwined with Manchester's music community - which accounts for a third of its fundraising.
With numerous live music events, two compilation albums and supporters including Doves, Elbow, Badly Drawn Boy, Mr Scruff, Ian Brown, Liam Frost, The Travelling Band, I Am Kloot, Jim Noir and Stephen Fretwell, MaK is a charity close to the hearts of many of the city's musical heroes.
This Saturday 10th November sees a free all day event to raise funds for the charity and explain a little more about what they do, featuring stalls, food, talks, films - and an exciting programme of evening entertainment provided by local bands and DJs.
The event runs from 11am until 11pm, with plenty of activities to get involved with.
Want to help? MaK are seeking donations of clothes, bags, jewellery, raffle prizes, boxed DVDs, CDs and games (with barcodes for resale), Jigsaws, Children’s books (in English), unwanted garden tools (secateurs, trowels, spades etc), laptops and anything in good condition that other people might enjoy.
Word of Mouth, Chorlton Central Church, Barlow Moor Road, M21 8BF, Saturday 10th November 11am-11pm.
