The Hamlet

The Hamlet 

We are raising money for an amazing organisation called The Hamlet .
Based at the stunning Three Sisters Recreation Area in Ashton-In-Makerfield, Wigan.

The Hamlet    provides day-provision for those young people aged 19-25 with additional needs, with the aim  of  progressing them into  full-time unsupported employment or voluntary work.    

The Hamlet was the brain child of an amazing woman called Gemma Crompton.    A teacher with 15 years' experience of working in the special educational needs sector.  She recognised that there was a lack of  opportunities for additional needs students to help them transition into future employment.

The Light bulb moment

During a  walk   with her young family to   Three Sisters recreational area, Gemma  spotted two derelict  buildings  set  amongst a beautiful  backdrop   and   the idea for The Hamlet was born.

With no  money to speak of, but with an iron will,  Gemma approached the local council and took on the challenge of raising funds to secure the  site and   build it into  a  local business where the young people could flourish, working in the cafe  or print shop.

What we hope to provide

We hope to raise enough funds to help  The Hamlet  pay for   IT  and connectivity Services  for the next few years and any additional funds above the target  will  hopefully  allow them to add some much needed PC's to an IT  classroom.

Please help us in raising as much  as possible.  We think it is an amazing cause, the  students  are a truly inspiring group of individuals and   Gemma   is a role model.   

We are hoping to raise £3000 which should pay  for  IT and connectivity services  for the   next 5 years and we're looking to do this by the end of April 2020
