We at DP were delighted to welcome the present Mayor of Bolton (Councillor Elaine Sherrington) to visit us on the 9th January.
She was only available for an hour as she is such a busy lady, but during that hour she was able to visit various areas of the Project.
She called in to see the classes being taught English, the Clothes Room (where we give out donated clothes to those in need), the Triage team and our Caseworker (who have a huge list of people to help), our Drop-in room (where folk can get free hot drinks all day and enjoy games of table tennis, pool and table football and also a hot meal at lunchtime), and the Food Room (where refused asylum seekers can get food parcels).
She was therefore able to have an overview of our weekly activities.
We are very grateful to the Mayor for sparing time within her busy schedule to visit us.
