Morgans volunteer at local charity for the third year running
A couple of weeks ago the Morgans City Living team spent a day volunteering at local charity, Leeds MENCAP. The aim was to help maintain and improve the facilities for the children and adults who use The Vinery Centre in East End Park. Leeds MENCAP (http://www.leedsmencap.org.uk/) provide services and activities to improve the lives of children and adults with a learning disability along with their families and carers.
On the day the team were divided into separate groups and allocated specific jobs which ranged from cleaning several activity rooms, chairs, tables, external and internal soft play areas, repainting the reception area, creating new displays and gardening to make the outdoor areas more pleasant.
Our MD, Jonathan Morgan says we believe that charity begins at home and that we have a duty to do all we can to support the less fortunate in Leeds. Each year we offer our employees volunteering and fundraising opportunities to help make a positive change. The whole team were totally enthusiastic and committed to completing all their jobs and to the highest standard.
Cath Lee, Chief Executive of Leeds MENCAP adds “Morgans volunteers are fantastic. Leeds Mencap couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers. Volunteers enable us to do more and bring a diverse mix of skills and experience which enriches what we can offer. Their enthusiasm and energy is always a boost – we can never thank them enough”.
Morgans City Living have supported a number of charities within the Leeds community for many years, including Leeds MENCAP, The Market Place and St George’s Crypt. Our MD is a Director of St George’s Independent Living and The Old Fire Station at Gipton and a Trustee of Leeds Community Foundation, which contributed to the construction of The Vinery Centre for Leeds MENCAP with a significant grant.
