The new Chair of one of Macclesfield’s leading charities, Cre8, met recently with local MP David Rutley, to discuss the charity’s work going forward.
Jenni Hardy takes over at Cre8 from its longstanding Chair and Trustee of twelve years, Pip Mosscrop. Prior to her appointment, Jenni had served as a Trustee at Cre8 and worked for many years as a Senior HR Director at AstraZeneca.
David has worked closely and actively with Cre8 throughout his time as Macclesfield’s MP. The charity offers a wide range of activities and services for young people and their families, from the Moss Rose Estate in Macclesfield. Cre8 focusses on supporting those who are at risk, helping to improve their life chances and supporting them with any issues or challenges that they are facing. The charity is staffed by qualified youth workers, supported by youth and community volunteers, many of whom live on the Estate.
At the meeting, David spoke with Jenni about the positive impact that Cre8 has had on the lives of many young people in Macclesfield, and their families, and how it can continue to meet the varied needs of the communities that it serves. He also heard from Jenni how she hopes to reach out and continue to build relationships with other groups supporting the community, and to promote fundraising to support Cre8’s important work, including its social enterprises. This initiative sees young people and young adults employed in doing garden and grounds maintenance, and commercial vehicle washing, helping to give them critical skills and to make a valuable contribution to society.

Speaking after his meeting, David said, “It was great to meet Jenni and to hear about Cre8’s exciting plans for the future. I have seen first-hand the real and positive difference that the charity makes to the lives of young people on the Moss Rose Estate, and would like to thank Pip Mosscrop and the team for all that they have achieved over the last twelve years. I will continue to actively support Cre8 in its important work in the community, and I would also encourage more local residents and businesses to support Jenni’s plans to identify new business partners and raise much-needed funds for the charity in the months ahead.”
