Leeds Mencap, a local, independent charity supports over 400 people with learning disabilities and their families each year as well as over 3,000 people through its specialist facilities at The Vinery Centre, which includes a community nursery and meeting space and room hire. It relies on charitable donations in order to continue its vital work.
Cath Lee, CEO of Leeds Mencap, says: “We are absolutely delighted with the generosity shown by The Technology Group once again. Jonathan and the team have been fantastic supporters over the last few years and this donation is fantastic. This in-kind donation means that we can deliver emotional and practical advice and support to 12 families each year. This could be helping a family with a child that has been excluded from school or supporting a family who need financial help as they have given up work due to their caring responsibilities.”
Jonathan Marsden says: “Having worked and lived in Leeds my entire life, it is an excellent opportunity for us to give something back as part of our social responsibility. We really want to support our local area, helping Leeds to thrive and develop in the future. I urge other businesses to support our local community and donate to great causes like Leeds Mencap in anyway they can. If that is personally through fundraising or with a product or service that your company can offer.”
