Double boost for Mahdlo thanks to new and existing patrons

Mahdlo Youth Zone has received a double boost with one new patron signing up to support the charity and another committing to three more years onboard.

The latest recruits to Mahdlo’s patrons programme are specialist social care providers and Oldham recruitment agency Brooks and Brooks, a family-run firm who have agreed to become bronze patrons.

They are joining a growing number of financial backers that includes ePowerTrucks/Lift Safe who are extending their support and increasing their financial contribution.

Lucy Lees, Mahdlo CEO, said: “We extend our deepest gratitude to ePowerTrucks/Lift Safe for their unwavering commitment and continued patronage of Mahdlo Youth Zone. 

“Their decision to extend their support for another three years and increase their contribution underscores their dedication to empowering our youth. Their partnership is invaluable, and we are incredibly grateful for their ongoing investment in the future of our community.”

First opened 12 years ago, Mahdlo Youth Zone is dedicated to young people from all over Oldham aged 8 to 19 years, and up to 25 for those with a disability. Its mission is to provide opportunities for young people to be the very best they can be through a huge range of activities.  

The Youth Zone 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.

ePowerTrucks is the electric vehicle division of Lift Safe Ltd. Established in 2000, the Oldham company specialises in the sales, repair and service of road legal electric truckselectric street vacuumselectric pedestrian tow tugs and a wide range of electric multi-passenger vehicles.

Rebecca Parker, director of finance and HR, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we’ve committed to another three years of support for Mahdlo Youth Zone. Our partnership with Mahdlo has been incredibly rewarding, and we’re excited to continue contributing to their incredible work in empowering young people.” 

Launched in 2015, Brooks and Brooks began life as a specialist recruitment agency and expanded its services into caring for young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties three years later. It now runs four homes for young people – all rated good by Ofsted – and provides care staff for organisations throughout the North West and West Yorkshire. 

Director Junior Brandford says: “As a local business with deep-rooted ties within the borough, we understand the importance of young people being exposed to opportunity. Mahdlo provides a safe space for young people to engage and be open to positive experiences, which in turn allows better outcomes in life.”
