Mantons owner Chris Beards says, "We are all extremely proud to have been able to raise over £30,000 as well as recently raising £660 for the DEC and the Red Cross to help the people of Ukraine. We are also thrilled to have worked with and helped local organisations such as Crossroads Care, Isle of Man Arts Council and The Isle of Man Post Office.

"I would personally like to thank all our amazing current and previous team members and our fantastic customers who have helped make this possible."

Fundraising Co-Ordinator for Crossroads Care, Megan Faragher continued, "Mantons has been a great supporter of Crossroads over the years and we are extremely grateful for their continued support. Like many other local charities, Crossroads has felt the effect of the pandemic financially and therefore it has been wonderful to have the support of Mantons, especially in a time when the retail industry has also felt the effects. We would like to thank the Mantons team for making such generous donations to our charity and congratulate them on their continued dedication to supporting our local community."

The Mantons Team plans to keep on fundraising, helping the community and supporting new artists and small gift and greeting card suppliers.
