Great causes deserve great support. We’re doing our bit by fundraising, volunteering and putting our skills to good use. From bake sales and sponsored mud runs to awareness campaigns, here you’ll find out more about the charities we’re supporting and what we’re doing to help out.
Breast cancer now affects one in eight of us. In Yorkshire and the Humber alone, there will be 4,600 diagnoses this year. Nearly all of us know somebody who has been affected, so it’s a cause close to our hearts. That’s why we’re getting behind the amazing team at Breast Cancer Haven, our Charity of the Year for 2019.
The organisation provides free emotional, physical and practical support to people affected by breast cancer. 87% of those who receive help say the support is essential to their recovery. But it comes at a cost of £1,000 per person. So we’re doing all we can to help the charity help even more people.
Yes, we have offices in London, New York and Gibraltar. But the home of HOME will always be Leeds. So we’re doing our bit for a great local cause in the Leeds Community Foundation. Supporting thousands of charities and voluntary groups across the city, the foundation aims to create opportunities for those most in need. We recently created and produced a film to raise awareness about loneliness, an issue affecting over 37,000 people in Leeds. You can catch it here. We’ve organised bake sales and sponsored Homies on mud runs. It’s all to raise crucial funds so the Foundation can continue to invest in our local community.
