JCI Manchester are getting ready to host our twins JCI Cork this weekend as part of the Jo-Cox Great Get Together Initiative. Twinning is an old JCI tradition that partners up local chambers of different countries and encourages them to visit each other on an annual basis.

Last year we were lucky enough to be invited over there for a fantastic weekend in one of Ireland’s most vibrant cities, Cork. The guys from JCI Cork put on a great show for us with a selection of activities like Urban Orienteering, Graffiti-ing electricity boxes, Social Media Training, Raising Money for Cork Mental Health and finally a good old Irish knees up 2 nights in a row. Standard. We were overwhelmed by the welcome we received and with the turn out from their chamber so we’re eager to return the favour in similar fashion.   

This year it’s our turn and we want to show them some of the best parts of Manchester! Including its people. Here’s our itinerary for the weekend in case you want to join us for what will be a fantastic weekend!
