Deputy Leader of the Labour party and local MP Angela Rayner has praised Ashton United for their part in the lockdown support efforts.
Ashton United in the Community have partnered with other local charities and groups to ensure their communities get the help and support they need during these unusual times.
MP Rayner, a patron of AUITC, said: “This is typical of my local constituents mobilising to ensure that nobody is left isolated or without support; as a community we believe in helping each other in times of difficulty.
“I am proud of the comradeship and community spirit they are demonstrating.”
The so-called Smallshaw-Hurst Community Action Group is providing a helpline for people, a dedicated Facebook page, volunteering opportunities, activity packs for children and families, activities to combat stress and loneliness and other services as they become available.
