I am writing to thank you for helping with the collection on Wednesday 5th November at Buile Hill Park Bonfire. The collection managed to raise £450.00, which is absolutely fantastic. I can confirm that your donation will benefit the following charities:
The Andrew Cooke Music Award Trust and Memorial Fund: This charity helps all children across the city to afford to buy and afford tutoring of a musical instrument. Music has been proved to help children socially, build confidence, teaches discipline and helps them to express themselves. Most importantly learning to play a musical instrument gives children enjoyment and the opportunity of learning a new skill.
Salford Young Carers: A young carer is a child or young person under the age of 17 who carries out significant caring tasks and assumes a level of responsibility for another person which would normally be taken by an adult. This service is for young people aged between 8 and 17 years. It offers advice, support, information, specialist support groups, activities and residential breaks. Salford young carers’ service also runs the young adult carers service for those aged 16 to 24 to ensure a smooth transition into adulthood for long term carers. The service works with families and other providers in the city to reduce the impact of caring on young people.
The Salfordian in Southport was built by Salford Council in 1963 to provide a refuge for residents and their carers, with 24 hour on call support. Today, the hotel is run by the Salfordian Trust and caters mainly for older Salford residents and less mobile visitors but they also welcome other guests. The Salfordian helps those people by giving them the opportunity for much needed respite and a chance to enjoy a popular holiday destination knowing that their care needs will always be catered for.
The Right Worshipful, The Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Christine Hudson
