Recently we had a day none of us will forget.
We were privileged to meet some incredible people in Leeds to create photography for the upcoming launch of The Leeds Fund.
The Leeds Community Foundation connects community groups that are making a difference in the city, with the people who wish to invest in a better future for Leeds. The Leeds Fund is officially launching in June so watch this space if you’d like to raise money for this amazing cause.
First up we visited LEEP1, a community café in Chapeltown that helps people with learning difficulties to speak up for themselves. There were some real characters on hand to explain what this amazing charity does, from training people up for their NVQ in food hygiene, to helping customers at the café, to making films. The laughter club there is not to be missed!
Then we met Elliott Turnbull, the inspiring chief exec at The Works skatepark, one of the UK’s largest indoor skate and BMX parks. Elliott and his team, together with help from The Leeds Community Foundation, aim to provide children and young people in Leeds with opportunities through sports, training and academic work.
And last but by no means least, we met the inspiring ladies at Shantona Women’s Centre in Harehills, who told us some of their incredible life stories.
For more on all these amazing people and on the Leeds Fund, please have a look at the heart warming film we shot, directed and edited on the day.
