Mahdlo Mentors Raise Hundreds Through Walking Challenge

Mahdlo’s Mentoring Team has raised almost £400 for the charity after completing the Mahdlo Way Challenge.

The challenge, a 42 mile walk over four Saturdays in July and August, was a direct mirror of the Oldham Way walk that starts and finishes at Daisy Nook Country Park, taking in Saddleworth along the way.

A mixed group of mentees, mentors and staff struck out into the countryside to take part, with our group of young people taking the lead on the fundraising and spearheading the walking group.

Nadine Hopkinson, Mentoring Coordinator at Mahdlo, said: “I want to send a huge thank you to everyone who took part, supported the group, and also gave sponsorship to keep our group of intrepid explorers going!

“We had an amazing time on the walk. There were plenty of challenges along the way but the group was awesome and I am so proud of everything they’ve achieved.”

Our mentoring programme is recruiting again! For more info please contact
