Roary’s Big Week – Painting the Town Red

Roary’s Big Week will take place between 17th – 23rd April 2023 celebrating the work done by the good people of Teesside to help their communities.

We will be fundraising too, that’s vital to help us to keep helping you and your communities. And asking everyone to paint the town RED!


Here at MFC Foundation we’re proud of Teesside, it’s people and its pride and all through that week parts of Middlesbrough town centre will be illuminated in Boro red, as Middlesbrough Council backs us in our big week which we’re calling Roary’s Big Week – he’s going to be one busy lion as he helps spread the word.

Look out for the Town Hall, Newport Bridge, the Central Library and the fountains in Centre Square. All illuminated in red, with many more lights and buildings to be seen along the way.

Thank you to everyone who has agreed to back us so far, business and individuals, each as important as the next. There’s time for you to be involved too, to help raise much-needed funds for MFC Foundation – your Foundation – but only if you can afford it.

Donating or not, we can all feel the pride.
