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.”

Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone is a charity that provides a safe and inspiring place for children and young people to spend their leisure time. The Youth Zone is open to all young people aged 5 -19 and up to 25 through the youth hub. The Youth Zone’s three strategic pillars are skills and aspirations, cohesion and health and well-being.
