A charity in Chorleywood has praised the hard work from people and groups in Northwood in helping them build a new cricket club pavilion and café.
Mission EmployAble help people with learning difficulties get ready for the world of work via supported internships they provide.
For a long time now, they’ve been working on a training café for their clientele within the new pavilion under construction for the Chorleywood Cricket Club, set to open in Autumn.
Residents in Northwood have done their bit to get the project up and running, with several groups having already raised a fair bit of money.
The area’s ukulele band’s coffee mornings have managed to raise around £1,100, the Northwood Area Women’s Club managed to get £102 through Christmas card sales and the Northwood 41 Club Santa Float earned £1,000, all contributing to the pavilion’s development.
Chair and founder of Mission EmployAble Katharine Weston said: “We are expecting our beautiful new café to be completed in the autumn and are so grateful to the people of Northwood for their continued support.
“We hope that we will attract applications from young adults in Northwood for our 2022/23 supported internships, which start in September.”
To apply for supported internships that start in September later this year, you can email the charity’s training manager Cassandra Langham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
