The Mayor of Burnley will be hearing tweets rather than writing them – after being presented with a claret and blue bird box by TEAM Rise.

TEAM Rise, who meet at Vedas in Burnley town centre, provide employment skills to people with learning disabilities and was set up over two years ago.

The Mayor, Coun. Andy Tatchell, and wife Lorna went to meet the group and get a general overview of who TEAM Rise are and what they do,

“They were warmly received and the group thanked them by presenting them with a claret and blue bird box which we are currently making to raise funds for the group,” said Project Co-Ordinator Sharon Lees.
