New investment on the menu at Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone

Blackburn, UK – Wellocks, a food supplier based in Burnley and owned by William
Jackson Food Group, has pledged its support to Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone by
becoming a Gold Patron.

Wellocks is a family-owned premium ingredients supplier based in Lancashire. They
specialise in supplying high-quality ingredients to some of the best chefs in the UK.

Leigh Myers, Chef Director of Wellocks, said:

“We are proud to support Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone and their important work
in the community. As a food business, we recognise the vital role that access to
nutritious food plays in supporting the health and well-being of young people. We
look forward to working with the Youth Zone, and in addition to becoming a Gold
Patron, we’re keen to support with food donations and volunteering, ensuring our
partnership is built on real connections with our local community.”

Emma Swan, Partner at Forbes Solicitors and a trustee of Blackburn & Darwen
Youth Zone, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Wellocks to the Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone
Patron network; without the support of the local business community, we would not
be able to keep our doors open to thousands of young people.”

Youth Zone is open to all young people aged 5 -19 and up to 25 through the youth
