First Response Group raised the money from organising and hosting a Coffee Morning, Halloween Party, BBQ Lunch and from other private donation opportunities. First Response Group extend a huge thank you to the local community and local businesses for their kind donations and support to events the company have held. First Response Group also want to extend a huge thank you to all the staff at the company for their hard work in raising such an amazing total. First Response Group are committed to supporting Leeds Mencap and keen to build on the close ties they have with this local Leeds charity.
People with a learning disability find it harder than others to learn, understand and communicate. Leeds Mencap offers support to people with very different needs and aspirations in order to help ensure that they live a fulfilling life and achieve their goals. Loretta Jones, Head of Fundraising at Leeds Mencap has said this;
“As a local, independent charity that has to raise all its own funds, we could not achieve the work we do without the support of local companies. First Response Group have just been amazing, as their company strapline suggests, they have listened, responded and delivered to our needs and we are delighted to have an ongoing relationship with them.”
If you would like to get involved in raising funds for this fantastic local charity, either as a company, on your own, with colleagues and friends then please call Catherine Storey in the fundraising team on 0113 2351331.
