The Tim Bacon Foundation organised a city-wide restaurant takeover in September with some of Manchester’s best-known restaurants uniting for a city-wide fundraising event in support of North West cancer charities.
The Joshua Tree were honoured to be included with some of the most recognisable cancer charities in the North West for the fundraising event. "Dream the Impossible: Sequel" held at some of the city's most popular restaurants in September marking Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Manchester's restaurant Habas hosted guests and supporters of The Joshua Tree for a huge night of fundraising where guests dined before joining guests to party into the early hours together at Albert Hall. In total the event raised a staggering £426,531 of which The Tim Bacon Foundation donated an incredible £39,963 to help continue to support families affected by childhood cancers.
Pippa Watson-Peck of The Joshua Tree said “We are extremely honoured to have been chosen to be involved with such an event, and in memory of an incredibly visionary, Tim Bacon. The Tim Bacon Foundation have already supported The Joshua Tree in donating £30,000 to complete the landscaping of the new Support Centre. We cannot thank the team enough for their exemplary vision and dedication to continue to support cancer charities throughout the North West".
