£2k do­na­tion for youth sup­port

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

AN es­tate agent on a fundrais­ing mis­sion to sup­port char­i­ties in the Mac­cles­field com­mu­nity has donated £2,000 to a youth sup­port group.

Gas­coigne Hal­man, which has of­fices in Mac­cles­field, Poyn­ton and Prest­bury, has donated £2,000 to Just Drop In, a sup­port group that pro­vides guid­ance and coun­selling to young peo­ple in Mac­cles­field and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

Just Drop In, which first opened in 2001, op­er­ates as a free, friendly, walk-in sup­port ser­vice for 12 to 25 year olds, with no re­fer­ral or ap­point­ment nec­es­sary.

The char­ity is us­ing the money to pro­vide half a day sup­port ses­sions, once a week to chil­dren at Tyther­ing­ton High School, which will sup­port chil­dren ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a range of dif­fi­cul­ties.

Ann Wright, man­ager of Just Drop In, said: “We are de­lighted to re­ceive this gen­er­ous do­na­tion from Gas­coigne Hal­man.

“This fund­ing will have a di­rect im­pact on the emo­tional health of the in­di­vid­u­als ac­cess­ing the ser­vice, which in turn will im­prove pupil well­be­ing.”

Gas­coigne Hal­man cel­e­brated its 25th an­niver­sary by set­ting up a £25,000 fund to sup­port lo­cal causes.
