‘This is The One’ is a fundraising event curated by Stone Roses bassist and Manchester music legend Gary Mani Mounfield and his wife, events agent Imelda and promises to be a night of first-class entertainment.
There will also be the opportunity to win lots of fantastic prizes donated by bands, footballers, actors, venues and promoters. All proceeds from the event will go to The Christie Hospital and The Stockport Charitable Trust, two charities close to Imelda and Mani’s hearts; as Imelda explains:
“Both charities have supported me through my journey. Cancer affects not just the person who has it, but everyone around them, and I hope that by investing in some more research, we can help alleviate some of the devastation caused to families.”
Mani and Imelda have already received some amazing donations to support the event. There will be some unique memorabilia up for grabs on the night itself via a raffle as well as a special online auction.
This is the One also happens during Mani’s birthday week, so it will be a night of celebrations as well as fundraising, as he says: “When life deals you a pair of twos, you must get your game face on! The past two years since my wife’s diagnosis have been brutal in so many ways, but it’s also opened our eyes to so many things.
“This disease needs to be eradicated – we feel duty bound to do our bit to achieve this. So everybody, get on board, dig deep, help out, we will win!”
