Our next Trip…

We are pleased to announce our next trip will be to The Bury Transport museum!

Taking charge will be our brilliant tenant, John. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy then pop down to the Hub and sign up. 

The group will be leaving The Hub at 10am (ish!).

Hope to see you there!

Yale Donations

We were lucky enough to receive donations toward the running of our community hub. We were recipients of donations from Handelsbanken, Nexperia, EE, Greggs, BidFoods via a local donation drive handled by The Flux Club.

These donations allow us to provide a service to the Homeless Community, providing food and clothes to those who need it. 

We can’t thank our donors enough!

 

Christmas Party!

Thursday 19th December saw us host our Christmas Party at The Hub!

We had a visit from our very own businesslike Santa, some incredible food, endless Christmas songs and festive bingo with scores of prizes! 

I think it’s safe to say a good time was had by all. Thank you to everyone involved and all the tenants for attending!

The Donations are coming in…

We have been so lucky to receive donations from Bidfood, EE, Greggs and Pauline. 

We will be able to do so much good with our collected items. From giving our homeless community gifts and packs with necessities, giving out food parcels to those in need and continuing our open house policy from our Hub. These donations mean the goodwill can be passed on.

Thank you!

National Christmas Jumper Day

Our next trip…

Our December trip has been decided and it’s a lovely day our to The Christmas Markets!

Christmas Donations

November 27th saw the launch of our Christmas Appeal for donations to help the homeless community of Oldham.

With the help of local people and businesses we aim to bring some relief to those who need it most.

Real Change Oldham Launch

Today we attended the launch of Real Change Oldham – a charity dedicated to ending homelessness.

Each week in the Hub we dedicate time to crafting activities, which has resulted in some absolutely wonderful cards and decorations being made. Each week we are making more and more and this means we are able to sell the crafts and donate the money raised to Real Change Oldham! The crafts are all handmade by visitors to the Hub, our tenants and our homeless community, anyone who’s feeling a bit creative is always encouraged to take part.

We are proud to announce we were able to donate £72 from today’s event – from sales and Yale’s Pledge.

Thank you to everyone who crafted and to Real Change Oldham for inviting us to take part!

 

Donation Drive Announcement

Today Yale launches it’s Donation Drive for the Homeless Community.

We offer a safe, warm and dry place to spend the day, with access to food, hot drinks and clean and dry clothes for anyone who finds themselves homeless.

But in order to do this we rely on donations from all over Manchester.

We have produced a poster (seen here) that can be displayed anywhere you think it may be useful.

If you’d like a full resolution image, please email megan@yale-housingltd.org

Food Fridays – John & Bernie’s Diner

We are not ones to boast, but we definitely have the best tenants here at Yale!

Last Friday John and Bernie prepared an absolute feast of hot food for our tenants and Oldham’s homeless community.

There was Chilli, Chicken Korma and Sausage Casserole, along with sandwiches and desserts!

It’s safe to say nobody left hungry.

We couldn’t be more proud of the development of our tenants, and their dedication to helping others.
