Mahdlo Youth Zone hosts summer of fun following Tesco support

FROM cookery workshops to trips to Blackpool, young people at Mahdlo Youth Zone had a fun-filled summer thanks to Tesco stores in Oldham.

A £6,000 donation from the stores helped the Egerton Street youth zone to provide numerous activities including the trip to Sandcastle Waterpark, Blackpool.

The stores also provided a cookery workshop where children could try their hand at healthy homemade pizzas, tasty scones and robot sandwiches.
