Two good causes have benefited from donations raised through this year’s Oldham Business Awards.
Mahdlo Youth Zone has received £3,500 while Dr Kershaw’s Hospice has been given £1,500.
The 2019 Oldham Business Awards ceremony took place in May at Queen Elizabeth Hall, supported by headline sponsor Pearson Solicitors & Financial Advisers along with other sponsors including Chambers Business Centre.
Proceeds from the ceremony and other Oldham Business Awards activities through the year are supporting the work of Mahdlo Youth Zone and Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.
A cheque for £3,500 was recently donated to Mahdlo representative Claire Crossfield.
