Festive fundraiser spreads christmas cheer to Onside Warrington Youth Club

22 December 2017

Local children are set to benefit from a festive fundraiser by Warrington-based, leading metal recycling company, EMR.

Employees at EMR, have raised £7,540 for Onside Warrington Youth Club (WYC) through an internal Christmas raffle and auction which was match funded by the company.

EMR presented the cheque at the charity’s Christmas Lunch on Thursday (21/12), where employees of the international company volunteered to help the club prepare for its annual event.

The money raised will fund mentoring for children with behaviour and learning difficulties in the area throughout 2018.

For the past five years EMR has proudly supported WYC, which is the largest voluntary-sector youth club in Warrington. The club believes in inspiring young people to achieve and exists to support young people’s development, offering opportunties to gain, increase and develop skills, knowledge, self-awareness and confidence. They work with several other local groups and agencies in Warrington to help improve young people’s lives and their futures.

EMR’s Head of HR, Angela Jones said: “We are pleased that over the years our fundraising has helped the youth club provide vital training and mentoring programmes and we are thrilled by the support from our employees at all our 67 sites across the country. The club inspires young people to achieve and we’re glad that we can help make a difference.”

WYC Chief Executive, Dave McNicholl said: “We are completely overwhelemed by the incredible support we receive from EMR. The generosity of the staff and the company are staggering. This huge amount of support will allow us to mentor seven vulnerable children throughout the year, changing and possibly saving their lives. This vital work is not possible without funding and the support from EMR really will make a real difference to local children, young people and families, thank you to everyone from EMR.”
