Mahdlo Business Breakfasts to return after Covid break

Date published: 27 July 2021

Mahdlo Youth Zone will be hosting its first face to face Business Breakfast in over year on 14th September.  

Guests will be able to enjoy breakfast during the networking event, and hear from an inspirational guest.
Mark Adlestone OBE DL, Chairman of Beaverbrooks, is the speaker and will be exploring whether it is possible or desirable to integrate philanthropy and values in the corporate world.

He will be sharing how the Beaverbrooks team manages the busy day to day demands of running a national brand whilst making a significant impact to communities and charities.

Claire Crossfield, Fundraising Manager at Mahdlo said: "We’re looking forward to welcoming Mark to Mahdlo and seeing new and familiar faces.  We’ve been waiting a long time to welcome people back through our doors.

"As a charity having a speaker like Mark discussing the impact the company has made to organisations like ours is fantastic."

The event is £10 to attend or free for Mahdlo Patrons, with all proceeds from the event being used to deliver workshops to support young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Lucy Lees, CEO at Mahdlo added "It’s been a horrific 16 months for us all, young people in Oldham have disproportionally felt the full force of the impact of the Pandemic.  We’ve seen an decrease in young people’s aspirations, hopes and dreams for the future, an increase in concern about their education and a significant increase in poor mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, any money raised through this event will have a huge impact on so many young people."

To book, visit or alternatively if you are a Mahdlo Patron email to be added to the guest list. The event takes place at Mahdlo between 8:30am – 10:30am on Tuesday 14 September.
