Chinese New Year Party for the Homeless
The Chinese New Year Party for the Homeless people and volunteers who work for the homeless. The event was an excellent opportunity to involve local Chinese restaurants and encourage the work of businesses in the community. The generous contributions by the following restaurants meant there was plenty of delicious food for everyone. The following restaurants have been supporting our Homeless Party in the past 5 years. It is them made our Homeless Party successful.
On 9th of January 2019, we carried out our annual Chinese New Year party for the homeless on Oldham Street, Manchester City Centre. With homelessness on the rise in Manchester as prices of rent continue to escalate, MCC wanted to include the homeless and those who are marginalised in society in on the Chinese New Year celebrations. We organised 100 hot meals consisting of: Sweet and Sour Chicken, chicken Chow Mein, Veg spring roll, Prawn Cracker and Fried Rice. The UK Guanyin Citta have donated 108 small Veg fried rice, 120 bottle water and 2 large tray of apples. Celebrating and bringing people together is our core aims and we hope to help different people in Manchester.
“MCC has been working with many local Charity organisations to support Manchester Homeless people since 2009 – Nov 2016. We want to encourage Chinese Community to integrate with the mainstream and care for the community around them. Chinese parents need to set good model for their children.” said Jenny Wong
“The Chinese community should be able to learn the “British values” and develop good attitudes toward charity work. Through this program will allowed them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.” Said Qili Situ, Chinese teacher
