It’s that time again – time to go MAD FOR MAHDLO!
From June 8th-14th, we’ll be turning Oldham yellow with Mahdlo colours as our members, staff and volunteers, alongside schools, businesses and the local communities get involved with a range of fun activities and fundraising challenges.
The week will culminate in a ‘Mahdlo arena’ at the Oldham Carnival in Alexandra Park (Sunday 14th June) – there will be arts and crafts, a climbing wall, inflatables, sports challenges and fun for all the family!
Fundraising for Mahdlo is really easy and we want you to have heaps of fun. Whether you organise a night with friends, hold a cake sale, take part in an endurance challenge or sporting activity, our fundraising team is on hand to offer support, advice and guidance to help you on your way.
