Alan Turing's Statue surrounded by flowers

Alan Turing, the pioneering Computer Scientist and World War II codebreaker, has a statue in Sackville Gardens in Manchester. On 23rd June each year, we surround it with flowers in his memory for his birthday. Since 2013, we’ve raised over £12,700 for the amazing Special Effect, which is a UK based charity which uses video games and technology to enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities.
