My Indian Adventure – Emma Bailey – (Former Student of All Hallows visiting our Community Project in South India).
View the latest installment of Emma’s Blog here…
Wednesday 7th October 2015
Today I become a tailoring student, I sit with about 15 other ladies at the community center and we clatter away on the old Pine sewing machines all day and… I go home with a finished blouse! Not bad really – it just needs some sparkles adding then it will be ready. It’s a good thing I can already sew well-ish as taking instructions on darting, binding and sleeves isn’t easy in Tamil but we get there in the end with a mixture of broken English and lots of miming actions!
The tailoring class is part of the self help programme the Sisters run, the women can come for 6 months, for 500 rupees which is about 5 pounds they will finish the course with 40 complete garments. They are taught dressmaking and tailoring skills well enough to produce garments, so that they can repair and alter friends and families clothes or start businesses and sell the clothes to make money for themselves.
Many of the women are widows with children who are extremely poor and have no stable income. The group works around them giving them time to take the kids to school and pick them up. Some are sex workers who are obviously using the group to improve their quality of life and change their source of income.
Socially it is also a great support system for them to meet similar women, they make friends and we certainly had a laugh – they thought it was quite funny to watch me sew – I was something of a novelty to have in class!
Emma Bailey is visiting our Clinic and Community Project in South India. Emma is a former student of All Hallows and a graduate qualified Registered General Nurse. She is spending six weeks volunteering with the community in India. She is bringing us unique insights into how our project is making a difference to the live of people in Varusunadu and surrounding areas.
More installments of Emma’s blog with photographs will be shared as they arrive.
Ex-Silkmen Centre of Excellence Star opens with Hat-trick for MFA
Alex Bedford, Chief Operating Officer at the Cheshire FA, officially opened All Hallows Catholic College’s new £992,000 third generation (3G) artificial grass pitch (AGP) and changing pavilion recently (Friday 18 September). The facility was made possible thanks to a £499,900 grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund, which is delivered by the Football Foundation, and provides grants towards developing new or refurbished grassroots football facilities.
The new 3G AGP will be used extensively by the college, as well as a number of local Charter Standard football clubs, including Richmond Rovers FC, Bollington FC and Tytherington Juniors FC. The facility will be the first of its type in the town and over the next five years will increase the number of teams that use it from 63 to 102. The new pavilion will contain changing facilities for players and officials and will include wheelchair accessible toilets and office space.
The school have developed a link with Macclesfield Town FC who will deliver the ‘Street Football’ programme which targets hard-to-reach young people through diversionary football initiatives. Additionally, Macclesfield Town FC’s Academy of Football will also now be based at the site.
All Hallows worked in partnership with the Cheshire FA to secure a £499,900 grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.
The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund is funded by the Premier League, The FA, and the Government, via Sport England. It is delivered by the Football Foundation, the country’s largest sports charity. Since it was launched in 2000, the Foundation has awarded around 13,000 grants worth more than £530m towards improving grassroots sport, which it has used to attract additional partnership funding of over £740m – over £1.3bn of investment into the grassroots game.
Since 2000 the Football Foundation Funding Partners’ investment has provided 295 grants worth £13.9m towards grassroots sports projects worth over £27m across the whole of Cheshire.
By providing more high-quality facilities, coupled with coaching at the appropriate age group, the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund aims to improve the experience for regular players as well as attracting new players to the game.
Alex Bedford, Chief Operating Officer, Cheshire County FA, said: “It was a great pleasure to officially open All Hallows Catholic College’s new 3G AGP and changing pavilion. The facilities here in Macclesfield are fantastic, and will be of great value to the school and local clubs.
“I know how much hard work and effort that has been put into making this 3G and pavilion happen. Thanks must go to the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund for their generous grant that made this project a reality.”
Tony Billings, Principal of All Hallows Catholic College, said: “The College would like to thank Alex Bedford for officially opening this state-of-the-art facility. The centre will be known as the JP2 Sports Centre, to acknowledge the College’s links with the John Paul II Foundation for Sport.
“With this development, the College is proud to be able to provide opportunities for the local community and grass roots sport working in partnership with other agencies and organisations including Bollington FC and Tytherington Juniors FC. It has enabled the development of a partnership with Macclesfield Town FC through the new Football Academy, and we can also celebrate the enhancement of the sporting facilities here at the college for the benefit of the students.
“The sustained cultural impact locally will undoubtedly be significant as the opportunities provided by the use of this facility develop.”
Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: “I am delighted that a grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund has enabled All Hallows Catholic College to build this 3G pitch and changing pavilion. This development will provide a real boost to sport in the local area.
“Since 2000, the Football Foundation has supported grassroots projects worth more than £1.3bn, investing into areas where the need is greatest and where it will have the biggest impact in terms of getting more people playing football and a wide range of other sports.
“With this funding, provided by the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England, we are helping to improve community sports facilities across the country and thereby the playing experience of those who take part. This latest project in Macclesfield is the latest addition to the inventory of modern community sports sites we are developing that cater for the needs of local people who want to play sport purely for the love if it and to stay healthy.”
Macclesfield Town Football Club have embarked on a successful football academy in partnership with All Hallows Catholic College, the academy is for dedicated young players who want to continue playing at a high level whilst furthering their academic education. This new working partnership has created a special opportunity for young academy players to represent Macclesfield Football Academy & the Football Club while developing and supporting their academic and career development.
