Champion video: The Birchwood Centre
by David Simister

THE CHAMPION has been given a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the Birchwood Centre in Skelmersdale - and you can take a look for yourself with our latest video.

The centre, based on Heversham, provides help and support for young people aged between 16 and 25 who are homeless, and provides them with an environment they can call home while being supported by the charity's staff.

A team from the centre will also be taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge on July 2, and have already conquered several other peaks in their training for the main challenge, including Helvellyn in the Lake District and Moel Famau in North Wales.

So far they have raised £1,825 out of a target of £5,000 but if you'd like to offer your support to the group go online and visit the group's Just Giving page at
