We’re a proud Manchester business and relish any opportunity to support a fellow Mancunian organisation, which is exactly why we sung our hearts out in the 2019 ‘Y Factor’; a corporate talent show that returned for one final hurrah and helped to raise £50,000 for charity.

The ‘TDC Collective’ took to the stage as T-Birds and Pink Ladies to re-enact the infamous ‘Summer Nights’ from the iconic musical Grease, and raised much-needed funds for homeless charity, Mancunian Way.

The performance reprised Jude and Gary’s own rendition of the classic hit song a decade ago at Y Factor 2009, with the duo this time gracing the stage alongside TDC colleagues and friends, and going head-to-head against 10 fellow corporate acts for Y Factor glory.

The Y-Factor event raised £50,000 to support Mancunian Way, an inspirational charity that helps turn around the lives of homeless people in Manchester and elsewhere. The money will now be used to assist those that have been helped off the street to get into employment and take that next step to make a permanent shift in their lives and their self-esteem.

We want to say a huge thank to everyone who donated and to those who also turned out to cheer on our band of nervous, inexperienced, but enthusiastic vocalists.

Every penny raised will make a huge difference to homeless people’s lives in Manchester and beyond.

There’s also still time to donate, which you can do so here:
