EMR partners with charity supporting young people in need

1 July 2019

Metal recycler, EMR, based on Knowsthorpe Way and Pontefract Road in Leeds, has joined forces with Leeds Children’s Charity, a charity which supports young people in need and gives children respite from difficulties they face at home.

EMR has given funding to support disadvantaged young people from schools in Leeds. The funding will give 14 children from challenging backgrounds a weeks respite at Lineham Farm, a place where children can play, learn new skills, make new friends and enjoy time away from the difficulties they face.

EMR’s Area General Manager, Gavin Longley, said: “At EMR we put a great deal of importance on supporting the communities that are close to our sites. We are delighted to have a partnership with an organisation that supports local children who are facing difficulties in their lives.

“It’s great to know that the donation will make a real difference and we look forward to seeing the difference our support will make to local young people in Leeds.”

Leeds Children’s Charity Director, Dave Norman MBA, said: “On behalf of Leeds Children’s Charity I would like to thank the entire team from EMR for supporting the work that we undertake with young people from Leeds, all of whom are from backgrounds of challenge and disadvantage.

“From speaking to some of the team members at EMR I am aware, not only of their individual interest in our work, but also how committed the company is, as a whole, to supporting local charities such as ours. To everyone who has been involved so far, thank you.”

A team from EMR’s Leeds sites took part in Total Warrior on 23 June to raise money for more children to receive the vital respite the charity provides.
