    Difference this will make to the group:

    Your help will ensure the event is a success. The tournament, held at the end of each year, is to remember Haris Charalambous, one of the top players to come out of the Manchester Magic basketball programme.
    Haris died suddenly while training with his NCAA Division 1 Toledo University team in October 2006. He showed all the qualities we desire in a Manchester player, both on and off the floor, and is a great role model for other players.

    The event, which regularly attracts players from around the world, celebrates basketball, the community and reminds us all why we are involved.

    Difference this will make to the group:

    - Having images that represent what the project aims are will help with understanding by the different audiences involved.

    - Having images that represent Salford or Manchester will help the project be recognised as taking place in both cities.

    These two things will help encourage more groups, who can often run wholly by volunteers, be more aware of the project and get involved, as it will help towards having a better understanding of the support available to them to help them develop and grow.

    Difference this will make to the group:

    Having an up to date website will:

    - allow us the share information about what we do. Our website is sometimes the first place someone finds out about our group so it is important for all of the information to be up to date and as friendly and welcoming as possible.
    - we are completely volunteer run and the group is free to those attending so we reply on donations and funding to continue. We hope sharing the positive impact that the group has on the community will support us with future funding opportunities.
