Cowgills supports campaign to bring people back to Manchester

We are pleased to be supporting a new campaign ‘United City’ led by a number of Greater Manchester’s leading business owners, which aims to drive football back to the city centre.

Gary Neville has joined forces with Chris Oglesby of Bruntwood, Lisa Morton of Roland Dransfield PR, Will Lewis of OBI and Frank McKenna of Downtown in Business with the backing of Manchester City Council leader Sir Richard Leese, and Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham.

They say that Manchester’s cultural DNA is at risk unless we work together to do something about it.  The collective will campaign to get Greater Manchester on the road to economic recovery and fix its ‘broken ecosystem’. They hope to gobet the region ‘back on its feet’ and back to supporting retail, leisure, culture, and sports businesses.

Plans also include providing support and advice for business owners to make sure workforces are welcomed back safely, and raising funds for vulnerable citizens.

Wil Lewis from OBI commented, “A lot of people still haven’t even been back to the city centre since March. We’re so concerned for all sorts of different sectors.

“We hope that this organisation will encourage and help Manchester and encourage people to get back to the city – not in a cavalier way, in a Covid-secure way. It’s got to be done safely.”
