EMR joined forces in March 2019 with Leeds Children’s Charity, which supports young people in need and gives children respite from difficulties they face at home.
EMR provided funding for fourteen children from challenging backgrounds to enjoy a week’s break at Lineham Farm, near Leeds, where children can play, learn new skills, make new friends and relish time away from the difficulties they face. The team at EMR’s Leeds depots took part in a Total Warrior race to raise further funding, which was then match funded by EMR to give a further ten children a week at the farm.
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.
