Jacks Smokehouse – Chosen Charity Partner
For every Smoked Rag Pudding ordered, the Yorkshire Street eaterie’s owners contribute £1 to the Action Oldham Fund.
Carl Taylor, Jack’s Smoke House Director, said:
I was born in Oldham and as well as being part of Oldham’s regeneration I wanted the business to be able to give something back to the community. I have seen for myself some of the amazing work our smaller charitable organisations do right on our doorstep and Action Oldham Fund were the best way of getting our donations to a wide range of them.
With Oldham being the birthplace of the Rag Pudding what better dish to link to an Oldham-focused charity?
PC Paramedics – Chosen Charity Partner
PC Paramedics is based in Oldham and has been repairing business and home computers, servers and electronics all around the North West for over 12 years. PC Paramedics will make a donation equivalent to £2 for every hour worked.
Mark Wyke, owner, said:
I have been wanting to do something to help my local community for some time. I have really enjoyed working with charitable group IGA Learning who support disadvantaged people to develop educational skills, providing them with computers and set up for their classrooms. This has inspired me to give to The Action Oldham Fund, it lets me contribute further to similar and a wider range of local charitable groups across the borough and ensures the donation reaches good causes close to home.
Pearsons Solicitors – Chosen Charity Partners 2016
The Oldham law firm chose the Action Oldham Fund as their charity of the year. Pledging a donation of £1 for every house transaction and £2 for every commercial premises transaction handled in Oldham, they donated £800 to the charity for this effort. In addition, they sponsored the inaugural Action Oldham Ball, helping raising money and awareness of the smaller groups the Fund supports.
The team also took on two huge sponsorship challenges, firstly throwing themselves down a welsh mountain on the world’s fastest zip wire then onto conquering Mount Snowdon with an awesome £3000 raised for the charity.
Karen Pointek, Pearsons Solicitors, said:
It was such an exhilarating feeling to be flung at 100mph down a Welsh mountain with only a wire to suspend us as we hung across the hills and hurtled to the valley floor. It was all in aid of charity and so as we screamed and swore our way down the zipwire we reminded ourselves of the good work we were doing.
Clare Taylor, from Action Oldham Fund also took on both challenges, said:
It has been a pleasure to get to know the team at Pearson Solicitors, and how better to do it than flying across a Welsh Cavern on a mile long wire, or whilst trekking up the highest mountain in Wales. Together we found our untapped reserves of strength and perseverance, and with a little encouragement from each other, we conquered these challenges and raised money to change local lives.
