Leeds-based total facilities management company, First Response Group Ltd, recently donated over £5,000 to Leeds Mencap who foster positive livelihood to children and adults with learning disabilities.
First Response Group, who is committed to supporting the charity and keen to build on the close ties within the city, raised the money from organising and hosting a Coffee Morning, Halloween Party, BBQ Lunch and from other private donation opportunities.
Mark Hullah, National Accounts Director who chairs the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, commented: “We are grateful to the local community and local businesses for their kind donations and support to events the company have held. Our staff have been extraordinarily fantastic in sparing their time to prepare for the Leeds 10km marathon and hosting the events. We are also grateful to the company Directors for allowing us to hold these events in works time disturbing the normal day workflow.”
Leeds Mencap offers support to people with very different needs and aspirations to help ensure that they live a fulfilling life and achieve their goals.
Loretta Jones, Head of Fundraising, said: “As a local, independent charity that must 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.”
