OLDHAM College (@OldhamCollege) and Willmott Dixon (@WillmottDixon) have teamed up to bring Christmas cheer to 200 local young people who have been adversely affected by COVID-19.
A joint campaign has seen several thousands of pounds’ worth of items donated or funded in just a matter of days for this cause – and produced a huge hoard of morale-boosting goodies. Oldham College and Willmott Dixon worked with Mahdlo Youth Zone and First Choice Homes Oldham (FCHO) to identify local young people who are NEET – not in education, employment or training – and who have been hit hard by recent events.It is easy to forget how the pandemic has changed everything for so many young people aged between 16-20 during 2020. Some had left school and were already struggling to find work before Coronavirus hit – while others have seen their family lives suffer due to factors like unemployment, debt or bereavement. Willmott Dixon, the UK's leading independent construction and property services company, are currently building Oldham College’s state-of-the-art new Construction Centre, which is set to open on-site in summer 2021.
