Northern Quarter property to be handed over to charity appeal

Northern Quarter property

Manchester-based property development companies Kamani Property and Capital & Centric have joined forces with the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity and Street Support.

The firms are providing their joint venture property site on the Northern Quarter’s Swan Street as a drop off location for essentials for Manchester’s homeless community during the coronavirus crisis.

Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity has launched a COVID-19 appeal, asking big businesses in the region to make a difference to those experiencing homelessness across the region at this challenging time.

Businesses are being asked, if they can, to donate food, welfare and hygiene packages in bulk, with Kamani Property and Capital & Centric’s property on Swan Street acting as the drop off point.

Kamani Property Adam Kamani chief executive said: “Our joint venture project with Capital & Centric, in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, is being utilised as a drop off point for essential items to help those affected by homelessness in and around Manchester. It goes without saying that this is a time to pool resources & lend a helping hand wherever possible, therefore we’re happy that we can do something to help during the current crisis.”
