Local company gives cared for children Christmas presents

Date published: 14 December 2018

Euro Options, an IT company based in Littleborough, made a generous donation of ten new bikes to local cared for children in the borough.

Councillor Kieran Heakin, Rochdale Council’s cabinet member for children’s services, said: "We are so grateful for this donation; it is such a kind thing for Euro Options to do entirely off their own back. I am so pleased that another local organisation is showing generosity to our cared for children and shows the boroughs is committed to giving those in care the best opportunities."

The company donated the new bikes and staff at Euro Options donated helmets and bike pumps too.

Gail Hopper, director of children’s services at Rochdale Council, said: “This is wonderfully kind. Our foster carers do an amazing job and they provide a loving Christmas for our cared for children, these bikes are a lovely addition to all their hard work and are a true sign of the season of good will in Rochdale.”

Paul Doherty, managing director at Euro Options, said: “The business was looking for a way to help the local area and we are so glad that, as a local company, we can make a small difference to children who have been through so much. We fully intend to support the children’s services moving forward. The work they do, looking after the most vulnerable children in our community could not be more important. ”
