“Our team worked with the teams at the Chadderton, Failsworth and Greenfield stores to pull together the refreshments and prizes which were used throughout the week’s celebrations.”
Andrew continued: “Mahdlo is a vital part of the Oldham community and provides services for young people in the area, we can’t thank them enough for all their hard work.
