CitySprint – the UK’s largest same day distribution company – is supporting Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm by becoming a “Business Hero”, helping to enable disadvantaged children in Leeds to recognise their full potential.
As a recognised “Business Hero” to the charity, CitySprint have made an initial contribution of £600 and have an annual fundraising target of £2,500 which will go towards sending three disadvantaged children to experience a week at Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm.
Having already supported over 100,000 disadvantaged children in the city, the charity
works to ensure that those who need respite or support receive it efficiently. They aim to help teach these children new skills, instil positive values and show them how to make a positive contribution to the lives of others.
The partnership was formed as a result of the great work that Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm do and the positive impact they have on young peoples’ lives in the area. It will form part of CitySprint’s ongoing commitment to support the local communities in which it works.
Andrew Parry, Leeds Service Centre Manager at CitySprint said: “Building relationships in the communities we work in is extremely important to us at CitySprint and as such we’re delighted to offer our support to Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm. We look forward to seeing the direct benefits our contribution has on the individuals as well as the wider community.”
Ian Hargreaves, Chair of Trustees at Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm said: “We are delighted such a reputable brand such as CitySprint have chosen to support Leeds Children’s Charity at Lineham Farm. Becoming a Business Hero is a really easy process and there are always great benefits in engaging with a local charity who impact directly on the wellbeing of the city within which you operate, and where many staff will live. We are really looking forward to forming a strong relationship with CitySprint and building similar connections with other local businesses throughout the year.”
