Dairy teams up with church work project

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

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.”
