Rotary and Local Charities/ Horwich Rotary Supports Bolton Young Parents Service
Meriel from Bolton Young Parents Service came to speak to Rotary Club of Horwich before Christmas, about the support that the Organisation is able to bring to young parents.
Young mothers who have babies, or pregnant Mums, sometimes find themselves in difficulty arising from a range of issues e.g. no parental support, problems with young fathers, and financial problems.
The charity has a large house in Bolton which can accommodate up to 10 sets of mothers & babies. They may stay at the house up to 6 months, in a caring environment until they are able to get back on their feet.
Horwich Rotary are pleased to donate £500 to their cause.
