Terry and John have done a brilliant job of sprucing up St Vincent's Urban Care Centre in Farnworth in readiness for our Open Day on May 30th. The UCAN provides a community resource in Farnworth aimed at building skills and bringing services right into the heart of the community. We rely on our dedicated volunteers who give their time to make sure we provide as wide a range of services as possible, such as ESOL, IT and Arts and Crafts courses, as well as weekly job clubs, counselling and coffee mornings for Carers. The Open Day is themed around wellbeing and we hope that it will be a great success and more local people will come and see what we have to offer. Thank you to Simmons Services for helping us make the centre more fresh and welcoming for our big day.
