Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre in Eccles was born out of the huge Thatcher led recession in the early 80s which closed many of the town's factories and led to mass unemployment.
Originally run by unemployed people themselves, it has grown to include the whole of Salford and offers legal and benefits advice, skills training and debt management. Its aims are "campaigning, supporting, advising and representing unemployed and employed people".
To celebrate thirty years of the ace Centre, there's going to be a fundraising event this Friday, 11th March at the Britannia Hotel in Manchester. Speakers include former Eccles MP Ian Stewart, Davey Hopper, General Secretary of the North East National Union of Mine Workers, and Avis Gilmore, Regional Secretary of National Union of Teachers. A letter of support will also be read out from Tony Benn.
Entertainment on the night will also include comedian Mike Elliot and a disco. Tickets for all this are just £20 which include a three course dinner and wine. And for another £50 you can get a double room at the Britannia Hotel with BandB.
