After a successful year of fundraising for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and Yorkshire Air Ambulance, raising over £2000, we have decided on our 2018 charity of the year as the Leeds Community Foundation.
In a series of fundraisers across the course of the year, to include a bake sale, several team runs, a charity golf day and a year-long charitable dress down Friday, the Manse Capital team are set to raise well over £2000 for charity. Manse Capital have further agreed to match the teams’ donations, doubling the donation.
To start the year working with the Leeds Community Foundation, we have joined the Leeds 100 Club donating an initial £1000 to the charity. The Leeds Community Foundation are dedicated to creating a city of opportunity for all, supporting thousands of charities and voluntary groups across the city of Leeds who are addressing the inequalities and important issues in their communities. The Leeds Community Foundation pride themselves as a catalyst for positive change in the Leeds region.
“There are 46 Community Foundations across the UK which make a difference by bringing together local philanthropists with dynamic local organisations and community groups who need funding and other resources. Founded in the heart of local communities, we work with donors, large and small, to make sure their gift has the greatest impact.” (Leeds Community Foundation, 2018).
We are so pleased to be raising for such important causes in our local community. We hope our donations will enable the Leeds Community Foundation to continue to provide and reach out to more charities and voluntary services in our region. As a company, we pride ourselves on giving back to the local community and local charities, and are pleased to be supporting such a dynamic source of funding in our region.
Rachel Evans, Development Officer at Leeds Community Foundation said, "We are delighted that Manse Capital have chosen to champion and support the work of Leeds Community Foundation by joining our 100 Club, making a real difference in the communities of Leeds that need it the most".
