North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 29 May, 12-2pm

Tune in to North Manchester FM on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History! This week’s show includes an interview with Alan Clegg, a trustee of Middleton’s John Stocke’s Charity.

Founded in 1692 by John Stocke, a merchant from Middleton, the charity is one of the UK’s oldest charities. It was set up to help the poor of the parish, and has been in continuous operation since its foundation. Alan is one of twelve trustees who ensure the charity’s continuous work, and we’ll be talking about the charity, but also about John Stocke himself.

As well as this, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark buildings?

Catch the show on Tuesday at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
