Muse becomes a patron of Oldham’s Mahdlo Youth Zone charity

13.02.24 2 min read by Charlotte Kennedy

We’re delighted to become the newest patrons to a local Oldham youth charity Mahdlo, contributing directly to their ‘Give and Take’ campaign this winter.

Mahdlo provides support to Oldham’s young people and their families, providing sports and activities, targeted practical and emotional support and food and household aid through the cost-of-living crisis.

Joining forces with family-owned brewers JW Lees, we will match all donations to the charity. Mahdlo is aiming to hit a £25,000 fundraising target by the end of March, with both firms pledging to boost the total to £50,000.

This collaboration builds on our work with Oldham Council as development partner to create a new neighbourhood in the town centre, complete with 2,000 new mixed-tenure homes. The partnership will bring millions of pounds of investment into Oldham, as well as creating new jobs and opportunities for communities across the town to thrive and prosper.

Max Bentham, Development Director said;

We are thrilled to be able to support Mahdlo Youth Zone and the wider Oldham community. This campaign will play a vital role in supporting local residents and we’re proud to play our part.”

Mahdlo Youth Zone first opened in 2012 and is dedicated to young people from all over Oldham aged 8 to 19 years, and up to 25 for those with a disability. It employs 54 full- and part-time staff and is supported by an additional 96 volunteers.

The Egerton Street centre is open seven days a week and provides an array of activities and services in support of young people, with more sessions spread across the whole borough.

We’re working in partnership with Oldham Council on plans to deliver new a neighbourhood in the town centre with  a safer and healthier environment, prioritising local jobs and learning opportunities for Oldhamers. The vision for the town centre is focussed around sustainability, community and creating quality.

More information about the project will be announced later this year.
