Chair of the WCHG Board, Bishop of Manchester, The Right Revd Dr David Walker visited the Manchester Enterprise Academy (MEA) to meet students who will benefit from a bursary donation from Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG).
The bursary donation will support 14 students in their first year of university, which will leave a lasting legacy for the residents and community of Wythenshawe.
The Bishop of Manchester said, “WCHG’s commitment to supporting the youth of Wythenshawe is an investment in the future of the community and the MEA are doing a fantastic job to support young people to both hold and reach their ambitions. I was delighted to meet the students and hear first-hand the difference these bursaries will make to their lives. Education really matters to the life chances of young people growing up in Wythenshawe and here we will do what we can to help support this.“
James Eldon Principal of the Manchester Enterprise Academy said, “I would personally like to thank Bishop David as Chair of the WCHG Board for all the support MEA is given by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group. It’s been another fantastic year for the MEA and we are looking forward to opening our new building, new school and the start of the new term. It’s critical we continue to work hard together with WCHG to support the continued development of Wythenshawe.”
