As part of a global Twitter Festival, or ‘Twestival‘, we’re coming together at an event on 24 March to raise money for Wood Street Mission, a local charity whose aim is to alleviate the effects of poverty on children in families in Manchester and Salford. The charity was chosen with input from across the community.
Twestival is back in Manchester, for the fourth time and, Social Media Manchester are looking to make this one bigger and better than ever before.
If you don’t know, Twestival (or ‘Twitter Festival’) is a global fundraising initiative using social media for social good.

Through harnessing the power of volunteers and social media, Twestival has raised over £760,000 for 137 good causes since the autumn of 2009.
