Fundraising via Leeds branches nets £7,000 for Lineham Farm

Assistant managers from our branches across Leeds have joined forces to raise £7,000 for a charity which helps local children.

These funds will help Lineham Farm provide much needed respite breaks and activity holidays at its site on Swan Lane in Leeds.

Colleagues at our branches in Leeds ran tombolas, raffles, bun sales, car boot sales and competitions to raise a total of £7,000.

To celebrate this donation, five assistant managers from the Leeds area visited Lineham Farm and were joined by representatives from the children’s centre and animals from the farm.
