The good causes for Irlam and Cadishead are listed below. Please vote for your favourite by 10 December.
To vote you'll just need a working email address and follow these three steps:
Cadishead Youth Club
We provide a range of activities from arts and crafts, cooking, gaming and sports. We also have key workers who help the young people in a variety of needs. The youth club is open for all young people aged 8 to 18 years of age, every Friday from 6pm to 8.30 pm. A lot of the young people who come to the youth club in the last year have helped out in litter picks in the local community.
We need to buy new equipment, games and consoles to keep the young people interested and motivated to stay in the Club and help to reduce anti social behaviour in the local community.
Cadishead Community Hall
Princes Park in Irlam was badly damaged by young people a few weeks ago and the cost to fix the park was estimated to be around £3000. The funding would go a long way to helping with this.
Fairhills Pre-school is for children aged between two and five years old. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and Ofsted requirements.
We would like to provide a dining room and a quiet/sensory room (for children with special educational needs) ready in time for the new school year this September. The need for these rooms has come about since the government increased free childcare for working parents from 15 to 30 hours per week.
Irlam and Cadishead Scooter BMX Jam
Young people from Irlam and Cadihead want to organise a scooter BMX Jam as a launch for the refurbishment of the park. This will be held on the day of the Irlam and Cadishead Festival.
Groups will have the opportunity to take part in a scooter and BMX performance /competition and young people from Irlam Skatepark have asked youth workers to support them in organising the Jam.
On the day of the festival we will have a Youth Zone which will include the Youth mobile bus, rock climbing wall, DJ workshop, arts and crafts, mobile football facility and lots of other fun activities for young people.
If we were successful in getting the funding, it would pay for the youth service climbing wall plus staffing, along with a DJ and arts and crafts Youth Zone activities.
We offer people on limited budgets access to affordable recycled furniture, white goods and clothing. We also recycle items that would otherwise be placed in landfill, reducing waste and helping the environment.
We currently have a van which we use to provide a free collection and delivery service of furniture. To enable us to extend this service, we would like to purchase a bigger van. We would trade in our existing van to cover some of this cost, and are looking for funding to cover the additional cost.
Pupils in our ECO council run projects across the school encouraging other children to recycle, walk to school, save energy, carry out litter picking etc.
The ECO council would now like to run a project to develop awareness across the school about recycling waste. If we are successful in getting the funding, additional bins for paper, plastics and food waste would be purchased in order to separate the contaminated waste from the main bins.
The pupils would also like to visit to a Recycling Centre in Greater Manchester where they can learn what happens to the waste we recycle and how this can be used as energy.
