A TYLDESLEY youngster’s dream came true when McFly guitarist Danny Jones visited a new club.
Danny, who is originally from Bolton, called in at St Anthony’s Centre in Horwich to give his support to Club imag1ne.
The club is an exciting new venture for youngsters with special needs, before taking to the stage with his band mates as the headline act at footballer Kevin Davies’ KiDs of Bolton Charity Masquerade Ball at the Reebok Stadium.
And Ellie Greenaway, 15, who attends Fred Longworth School, was lucky enough to meet the pop star. She said: “It was lovely to meet Danny. I love McFly and its brilliant that he’s here.”
The club, which meets every Tuesday at Bolton Arena for evenings of games, arts, drama and friendship, is staffed by highly qualified and experienced staff and offers membership to people between the ages of 10 and 30.
Impressed with the club and its facilities and with the promise to help the group in any way he can, Danny said: “I’m delighted to see these youngsters having this opportunity and having so much fun. It’s great for kids to be involved in music and productions and just generally being creative and expressing themselves.
“People have creative sides, whatever their abilities, and this group is letting young people express that.
“I would love to get involved – this is a group I really want to support.”
