Manchester Office to Support The Mustard Tree
From their base at 196 Deansgate, Farleys’ Manchester office will be collecting boxes of chocolates in support of The Mustard Tree’s Christmas campaign. The Mustard Tree supports homeless people and those in poverty in Manchester through friendship, practical support, and connections into work.

Reta Rose, marketing manager at Farleys and trustee of the Farleys’ Foundation explained,
