Get the kettle on, sit back, relax and hear from Oldham sporting legend, entrepreneur, and charity champion Terry Flanagan MBE, who will be launching Mahdlo Youth Zone’s Virtual Business Breakfast series on October 22 (8-10am).

Guests will have a one-off opportunity to hear Terry’s incredible story from growing up on the streets of Oldham in the 60s and 70s through to his celebrated career in Rugby League and more recently as an entrepreneur and businessman.

He’ll be sharing the highs and lows of sport and business.

Lucy Lees, CEO at Mahdlo, said: "Over the years Mahdlo has brought some high profile and inspirational speakers from across the country to Oldham.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Terry will be launching our virtual Business Breakfasts.

"He has a fascinating story to share and guests are in for a treat.”

Claire Crossfield, Fundraising Manager, added: "This event is a first for Mahdlo and as a charity we are asking that guests consider making a £5 voluntary donation that will help us continue our work to support Oldham’s young people.

"We’ve had to cancel so many fundraising events this year and with events in the future being so uncertain, all donations regardless of size are so important to us.”

Booking for the event can be made via Eventbrite here or by contacting Claire Crossfield on: or 0161 785 3862.
