Dairy teams up with church work project
A DAIRY has joined forces with a charity to give young people work and experience.
Creamline, a Manchester based dairy, has teamed up with Cre8, the Macclesfield-based Christian youth and community programme.
They have created Cre8 Facilities, a section of the charity created to support a programme which for a year will give 10 young people roles cleaning Creamline’s fleet of 250 milk floats.The young peo- ple will take on the paid work alongside their training or study.
Creamline’s director Philip Rice said: “Creamline has provided ongoing support to the charity, playing an excellent role in ensuring our young people gain the necessary skills to enter the world of work with confidence. By committing to a year long programme that provides weekly work, they’ve invested in the young people of Macclesfield and the community as a whole.”
Cre8 is based at St Barnabas Church on Lyme Avenue, on the Moss, and provides activities for young people including music tuition, cycling, cooking, arts and crafts and education.
Creamline’s joint managing director Chris Swallow said: “At Creamline we are committed to serving communities and place great importance on charitable initiatives, so it seemed a perfect fit teaming up with Cre8.”
