AN ATHERTON community education facility has received a charity boost.
Bolton West MP Julie Hilling chose the Green Grass Centre as the recipient of a £200 donation from William Hill.
Ms Hilling visited the Atherton branch of the bookmakers recently and was offered a donation to a charity of her choice.
She said: “I am delighted that William Hill has offered this donation. The Green Grass centre has an impressive range of facilities, with so many people not in education or employment it is vital it is supported.”
Manager Lynn Hayes hopes the centre, on Spa Road in Hag Fold, acts as a ‘fairy-jobmother’ by offering chances to develop interview technique skills and confidence boosting activities. Maths and English courses are also offered along with computer courses and homework clubs.
