Lord Mayor Leads Celebration of Small Groups

//Lord Mayor Leads Celebration of Small Groups

Over 100 small voluntary groups and charities in Leeds have been recognised by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Cllr Eileen Taylor for the contribution they make to the city.

Over 200 individuals from different communities and charities booked to attend the event held on 1 July at Leeds Civic Hall.

Each organisation received a certificate from the Lord Mayor, in recognition of the great work and positive contribution they have made and found out about the support and funding available to help them grow and nurture their activities and groups.

Lord Mayor of Leeds, Cllr. Eileen Taylor, said:

“There are a vast number of small groups and charities that help to make Leeds a great place to live and the work done in communities by these groups and individuals helps to show our compassion and strength. It was fantastic to be able to meet volunteers and workers and present certificates to them to recognise the work they do.”
