Why Elaine chose us

"Manchester businesses are proud to support their local communities."

"The Monastery of St Francis & Gorton Trust was set up by local volunteers in 1996 to save the precious heritage site of Gorton Monastery. Today the buildings provide a wonderful site for everything from conferences to weddings, as well as local community projects."

"As a charitable trust we need to work with a bank that reflects and understands our values. The Co-operative Bank’s commitment to lasting change and making a positive impact on the local communities is in total keeping with what we’re trying to achieve. Similarly, they share our vision for The Monastery as an invaluable community resource. They’ve stood by us, through thick and thin, for 22 years. They’re always professional, always responsive and, because we’ve had the same relationship manager for many years, they understand who we are and what we do."
