Funds raised at this year’s Saddleworth Show will support Mahdlo Youth Zone’s Christmas Parties. The Rotary Club of Oldham Metro and Saddleworth Rotary Club have both donated £750 each to fund five Christmas parties leading up to Christmas. Parties will be held in Senior Zone, Junior Zone, Girls Zone and across two Family Zone sessions.
Jon Stocker, Vice President of the Saddleworth Rotary Club said “Saddleworth and Oldham Metro Rotary Clubs working together with local community groups make the Saddleworth Show and Wellifest Music Event a great success.”
Jack Wild, Vice President of Oldham Metro Rotary added “Both Clubs are strong supporters of Mahdlo in their effort to help young people in the Oldham area.”
Lucy Lees, CEO of Mahdlo, said, “We are delighted that the 2 Rotary clubs are supporting us this Christmas. Young people have an awful lot going on now; we want to ensure they have the opportunity to have fun, celebrate and have a little Christmas magic during the festive season.”
As well as continuing to provide young people with opportunities to be the very best they can be, Mahdlo has also pledged to support Oldham residents by:
- Providing a free hot meal every session in addition to £1 meals
- Increasing the frequency of their clothes rehoming sessions, taking the lead on school uniform rehoming across the borough
- Expanding the age range to 0-19 year-olds during Sunday Family Zone sessions, providing a warm, safe space for more families
