Charity Focus – Leeds Women’s Aid – donation £500
The trustees of the Ten Percent Foundation decided to donate £500 to Leeds Women’s Aid, a charity set up over 50 years ago (they have just celebrated their 50 year anniversary) to provide services to women and families who are victims and survivors of violence and abuse; forced marriage; trafficking; stalking and harassment. They are part of a local network of organisations called the LDVS – Leeds Domestic Violence Service. The service was nominated by one of our clients with knowledge of their work.
What does the charity do?
Services include providing emergency refuge accommodation to adults and children, community services including a 24/7 helpline, training programmes and interventions.
How will the donation help?
“On behalf of Leeds Women’s Aid, we want to thank you and the Ten Percent Foundation for donating £500 to our charity. This money will help fund our Emmeline Garden Project: a new children’s outdoor play area and dedicated tranquil garden space for our residents to rest, recover and connect with others. We really appreciate your support.” Laila Fletcher, Leeds Women’s Aid.
