Community benefits from inter-departmental working

Community benefits from inter-departmental working

Community Learning presented book donations from our library collections to residents’ group, Our Sale West – in a great example of our departments working together.

We used contacts from our Communities team to find the best recipients for the children’s books given away by staff and students in December.

Community Development Support Worker, Trevor Eaton, presented the books to 'Our Sale West' chair Ralph Rudden and Assistant Project Manager Phillipa Tamey with Trafford Mayor Rob Chilton at Sale West Community Centre's Christmas dinner.

Trevor has volunteered at the annual event for local residents for the last ten years.

He said: “Our Sale West really appreciated the donation. They have a children’s club there and aim to make what we gave them part of a book share that will also support adults reading with children.”

The three course dinner for 90 people included carols from local school children.
