The Shakers Fans donate Easter eggs to local charity Barnardo's Rachel House Project...
Youngsters at Barnardo's Rachel House in Bury got a treat from the Club this Easter, receiving over 60 Easter eggs which had been kindly donated by Shakers fans.
For those who don't know Barnardo’s Rachel House Project offers supported accommodation for youngsters. This means that when young people move in they must agree to engage with the support offered by staff. The purpose of this support is to enable young people to address issues in their lives, and develop independent living skills so that they can move on to more independent tenancies. When young
people move in they sign a support agreement which is a contract between the key worker and the resident.
There is a house meeting each week, where residents and project workers get together to discuss house issues and events. This could be anything from anti-social behaviour to trips out. It gives the young people the opportunity to have a say in the running of the project. There is also an opportunity to apply for in-house grants from Barnardo’s to cover a specific need, eg, winter clothing.
The Club would like to say a big thank you to all the fans who donated an Easter egg to such a worthy cause and also to the staff and young people at Rachel House who were brilliant and welcoming to Danny Nardiello and Jim McNulty, we look forward to helping them in the future.
