Ashton community group Here for Humanity is offering free spaces on an anti-knife crime workshop run by The J-J Effect.Advertisement
Here for Humanity won the workshop, which has been funded by a donor, via a Facebook competition.
Chris Murray from the community group decided to give half the spaces to Fishwick Rangers’ summer club, whose Soccer City premises in Parker Street are the venue for Here for Humanity’s Tuesday foodbank.
Chris said: “We have opened up the other half of the spaces to people who want to come.
“It’s already paid for, and we have about ten spaces we want to open up to people who wouldn’t normally get chance to attend such a hard hitting educational programme.”
