Local business Ribble Packaging have generously donated a phenomenal £2000 to support Mahdlo Youth Zone through the Coronavirus lockdown.
Having called Oldham home for over 50 years, the manufacturing company based on Greengate Street, wanted to support Oldham’s young people during this difficult time.
The generous donation will mean Mahdlo can continue to support its members and the wider community.
Since the lockdown began Mahdlo has made more than 180 calls per week to members, with those needing it most receiving 7-days-a-week support. The Youth Zone has also moved much of its Youth Work delivery online, with at least 15 live Zoom sessions per week and pre-recorded content posted every single day onto the charity’s social media.
Lucy Lees, Deputy Chief Executive at Mahdlo Youth Zone, said: “We are so incredibly grateful for Ribble’s generous gift and cannot say thank you enough! In these uncertain times their donation will allow Mahdlo to continue to provide vital provision to the young people in our community who need it most.”
