OTC Supports Shaw Residents

A community has rallied round to help dozens of families left homeless by the Shaw gas explosion, some of the residents could be out of their houses for WEEKS.

Around 175 properties have been evacuated as a result of the Buckley Street blast.

The affected families are staying with friends or in emergency accommodation provided by Oldham Council and First Choice Homes.

A refuge centre has been set up at Crompton House School where people can go during the day for food and refreshments.

OTC have also rallied round in huge numbers to provide our own support to those in need, through our social media sites, a column in the Oldham Chronicle and a bulletin on Radio Revolution. We ensured the local community were aware of our collection point and we have been overwhelmed on the generosity of staff and Oldham residents. 

We took our donation boxes to the Salvation Army on Farrow Street in Oldham.
