Queensbury charity’s ‘Fun Club’ is a huge success    

16 October 2014 

Fulfil The Wish, a Queensbury based charity, is celebrating the success of its new ‘Fun Club’. Launched this year, the charity’s Fun Club has already helped many children with disabilities and their families across West Yorkshire.  

After securing a £2,500 grant from Leo Group’s Community Fund, the charity was able to launch the new initiative. Fun Club is open to any local family who has a child with a disability, and includes parents and siblings. The club organises fun party-type activities that give children and parents a chance to socialise and have fun.

To date, Fun Club events have included a family session at Active Soft Play Gym in Halifax, an afternoon at Cannon Hall Farm near Barnsley, a messy art party and a snow tubing party at Halifax Ski Centre. In fact, the first snow tubing party in July was such a success that a second party was held in September. Although the weather wasn’t quite as good for the second party it didn’t dampen anyone’s fun. The instructors at the slope were amazing and all the kids found the tubing very exciting. For many it was a new experience, one which they wouldn’t have thought possible due to their disability. 

Fulfil The Wish founder, Mary Appleton, said: “I would like to say a big thank you to Leo Group for not only giving us such a generous donation, but for giving us funds to be able to organise these events and bring so much happiness to some amazing children”

The Leo Group Community Fund was set up in 2011 with the aim of supporting a host of good causes that benefit children, particularly those involved in sporting activities, educational projects, cultural and environmental initiatives as well as schemes that aim to banish isolation.

The school is Calderdale's only secondary special school, providing education for up to 138 students aged 11 - 19 years. The school caters for pupils with a wide range of special educational needs.

Danny Sawrij, Leo Group Managing Director, said: “After visiting the school it is clear that the staff are doing a fantastic job! It was great to meet so many of the children and young adults at the school and hear about the improvements they have all experienced with the support of the Ravenscliffe team.”

To date the project has raised approximately £2,034,000 of the £2,540,000 required to make Ravenscliffe@SpringHall a reality.

Community Fund grant opens new chapter for pupils at Bradford school


12 March 2014


Chellow Heights Special School, Bradford, is to launch a new initiative to help children with visual impairments learn to read after it secured a grant from the Leo Group’s Community Fund. The library of tactile books will allow teachers to use an interactive approach to enable pupils to “read with their hands” for the first time. 

The initiative will benefit 60 blind and visually impaired children who attend the school. It follows a successful application by Chellow Hearts, the school’s family and friends charity, to the Community Fund. Chair of Chellow Hearts, Vicki Street, said: “These books also use Braille, large print, textures and sounds, and will be a valuable learning resource which will last many years. They would also be loaned to families and hopefully create a platform for us to break new ground and produce our own books like these in school, as there is a real shortage of them to purchase here in the UK.”


Catherine Horn, Leo Group Community Liaison Officer, said: “We are delighted that these books will open up the world of reading to a new and young audience." 

Chellow Hearts was awarded all £380 it sought from the Leo Group Community Fund to launch this library of specially-designed books as part of its “I Read With My Hands” project.

The Leo Group, which employs more than 400 people across its 10 operational sites in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, is at the forefront of the recycling and green energy sectors. Its Community Fund supports charities and grassroots organisations across the area, particularly those that benefit children, and has made a key contribution to the £200,000 that the company has donated to good causes within the past two years.




Community Fund helps Calderdale charity Home-Start

11 March 2014

More families struggling to cope with the pressures of day-to-day life are to benefit from a novel programme of support and friendship after Home-Start Calderdale was awarded a grant by the Leo Group’s Community Fund.

Home-Start Calderdale, which already provides a lifeline to 85 families and 250 young children, is poised to expand its work after it was awarded £2,500 by Leo Group. The extra money will enable its team of six staff and 120 home-visiting volunteers to extend its unique service to new families who are in need of practical or emotional support.

The needs of the families that the charity supports are diverse – ranging from loneliness and isolation to disability; from ill health to domestic violence; from relationship breakdown and depression to bereavement and child behavioural problems.

Linda Crowther, Senior Co-ordinator at the charity based in Holmfield Mills, Halifax, said: “Every year, demand for this support grows – but every year the money to deliver the service gets harder to find. It costs £1,250 a year to provide this valuable support to a family and this award from the Leo Group will enable us to meet the needs of an additional two families, and between four and eight children.”

The Leo Group, which employs more than 400 people across its 10 operational sites in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, is at the forefront of the recycling and green energy sectors. Its Community Fund supports charities and grassroots organisations across the area, particularly those that benefit children, and has made a key contribution to the £200,000 that the company has donated to good causes within the past two years.

Catherine Miller, Leo Group Community Liaison Officer, said: “Regrettably, one-in-four children under-5 has a difficult start in life because their families are under pressure. We share Home-Start’s belief that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving them a good start in life and helping them achieve their full potential.”




Bradford school strikes gold in 60th birthday grant win 

14 February 2014

YOUNGSTERS from a Bradford school are putting their shirts on their diamond jubilee year being in a class of its own.

For St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School, Bradford Road, Clayton, is to clothe all 256 pupils in a specially-designed commemorative polo shirt after it “struck gold” in its application to our Community Fund for help in turning its plans into reality.

We have awarded the school £1,500 from our Community Fund, which supports needy charities and grassroots organisations across Bradford and Calderdale.

The school’s family liaison officer, Sharon Langford, said the donation would crown the 60th anniversary celebrations.

“The money gives us the opportunity to present every child and some staff with a special polo shirt in gold – set to become our new colour – and with the new St Anthony’s school badge embroidered on,” she said.

“The children will be wearing the shirts for an aerial photograph of the school planned in May – one of the highlights of our jubilee year.

“They will also be wearing them when we open up the school to the wider community so it too can share in our birthday celebrations in a range of events we have planned to mark our special year.”

Catherine Horn, our Community Liaison Officer, said: “Tens of thousands of people have passed through the school gates of St Anthony’s since it first opened its doors in 1954 and it is close to the hearts of people living in the local community.

“This is a fitting and eye-catching way for the school to mark its diamond jubilee and we are delighted to be able to support this initiative.

“We congratulate it on the academic contribution it has made to the lives of so many people over the past 60 years, and wish it every success in carrying on this momentum in the next 60 years and beyond.”

Our Community Fund supports a variety of good causes across the Bradford and Calderdale heartland – particularly those that benefit children – and has made a key contribution to the £200,000 that the company has donated to charities in the past two years.

Christmas comes early for Queensbury charity with new project to help Yorkshire children with disabilities

-20 December 2013

Hundreds of children with disabilities across Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Leeds are to benefit from a range of activities – ranging from snow tubing to horse riding – thanks to a new charity initiative.

Queensbury-based Fulfil The Wish has been handed the opportunity to launch its long-awaited “Friends and Fun” project after being awarded £2,500 by Leo Group Community Fund.

Leo Group, one of the UK’s leading green energy specialists, operates sites at Swalesmoor, near Halifax, and Thornton in Bradford. Its Community Fund was set up to support grassroots organisations across the area and made a key contribution to the £125,000 that the firm donated to good causes last year.

The money will be used to take young people from across the whole of West Yorkshire – including those with profound physical disabilities - their parents and siblings, on a programme of various activities.

These would include hiring the Active specialist play centre in Halifax, taking the children to stables at Queensbury where there are facilities for riders with disabilities, snow tubing at Halifax Ski Centre, and swimming parties.

“‘Friends and Fun’ is a new but ongoing initiative and is the only one of its kind in the district that also involves siblings and parents,” said Fulfil The Wish founder Mary Appleton.

“We are grateful to the Leo Group for turning this dream into reality as, a small charity run on a voluntary basis, we would not have had the money to launch it without their funding.”

She added: “Over the years, I have met some truly amazing children and equally amazing parents, and it’s great to see friendships forming amongst parents and children, and in particular siblings.

“It’s an opportunity for able and disabled children to do the same things and hopefully try something different.”

The Leo Group Community Fund was set up in 2011 with the aim of supporting a host of good causes that benefit children, particularly those involved in sporting activities, educational projects, cultural and environmental initiatives as well as schemes that aim to banish isolation.

Leo Group Ltd has proved a “cash cow” with a difference after an unusual donation to one of the county’s biggest hospices.

15 August 2013

We have donated cattle to the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, near Keighley – milking a grand total of £2,000 for the charity when they came under the hammer at auction.

The donation will be used to extend the charity’s counselling and support programme for children who have lost a loved one.

Our company, with bases at Thornton in Bradford, and Swalesmoor in Calderdale, is at the forefront of the UK’s recycling and renewable energy sectors, but we also have have strong links with agriculture, raising more than 400 head of cattle a year – both pedigree and commercial - at our farms across the country.

We have long been a major supporter of the hospice – part of our £125,000 programme of charitable donations in 2012/13 – and we are a sponsor of one of its biggest fund-raisers of the year, the Mascot Gold Cup run at Wetherby Racecourse.

It is our company’s farming operations which equip us with the knowledge to understand the entire supply chain from start to finish - from raising the cattle to processing the by-products. Ultimately, there is no waste throughout the entire process.

Managing Director, Danny Sawrij, said: “We all know someone whose lives have been touched by the amazing work of the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.  By donating the proceeds from the auction of our cattle, we hope it will add an extra dimension to its work at the heart of the community.
“Our breeding objective is to produce cattle demonstrating correctness, top quality conformation, strong growth rates as well as a quiet temperament.”

Over the years, we have built a reputation for breeding quality cattle year on year. This is proven by prizes won at shows and sales throughout the country.

Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice is based at Oxenhope and offers specialist end-of-life care and treatment at home, or in the hospice, for people and their families who are suffering from serious illnesses.

Halifax Brother and Sister on Top of the World 

- 20th May 2013

Two Halifax youngsters, left without a mum after she was killed in a tragic car crash, are about to pack their bags for a once-in-a-lifetime dream holiday to Disney World.

Bryony Smith, aged 8, and her 5-year-old brother Oliver will jet out to Florida next month with their grandparents - thanks to Leo Group.

The family are the latest to benefit from a grant from the company’s Community Fund, set up to improve the lives of children & young adults.

The fund forms a key strand of the company’s wider programme of charitable donations, which last year donated a record amount of money to good causes in every corner of the community – some £125,000.

Catherine Horn, community engagement officer for the Leo Group, which specialises in recycling and renewable energy, said: “The tragic circumstances in which Bryony and Oliver were left without their mum touched the hearts not just everyone who work with us, but the wider community too.

“Sadly, there is nothing that can be done to bring their mum back into their lives but we hope that this all-expenses paid trip to Disney World will be of enormous benefit and they come back with happy memories that will stay with them.”

The youngsters’ mother, Emily Phillips, died on January 13 when a car in which she was travelling as a passenger was involved in a collision near their home while travelling along Boothtown Road in the town.

Their grandmother, Emily’s mum Julie Phillips, who will accompany the children, described the holiday as a chance of a lifetime. She said: “Bryony and Oliver know they are going somewhere but at the moment the destination a secret.  But when they find out I know it will put a big smile on their faces.

“They have struggled to come to terms with the loss of their mum and this trip is an opportunity for them which, without this support, they would never have experienced. It is all they deserve.”

She added: “Bryony adores Harry Potter and Oliver is mad about Spider Man so the trip to Universal Studios is top of a long list of things to do!”

Friends of the family are staging a fun day in the children’s honour at Grantham Road Recreational Ground, Boothtown, on June 9 before they go. They aim to raise money to enable them to see even more attractions during their two week stay.

Attractions include everything from stalls to a bouncy castle to a sponsored chest wax, as well as visits from West Yorkshire Fire Service, West Yorkshire Police and a road safety display.

The Leo Group Community Fund was set up in 2011 with the aim of supporting a host of good causes that benefit children, particularly those involved in sporting activities, educational projects, cultural and environmental initiatives as well as schemes that aim to banish isolation.

The application to whisk away Bryony and Oliver on their Disney experience was among more than 50 bids for up to £2,500 – a record number – that were submitted to the company earlier this year.




From Philanthropy To Philharmony With Bradford Scout Band

- 17th May 2013

A Calderdale firm’s community grant scheme is helping to support a South Bradford youth band who aim to make playing an instrument an accessible activity for all young people.

The Leo Group, which is one of the country’s leading renewable companies, has given Queensbury Scout Band almost £2,000, which will enable the band to buy new instruments for its young scout members.

The money donated by the Leo Group will go towards ten new trumpets for the band, who train children from the age of eight how to play musical instruments of their choice, even if they don’t have their own.

Last year the Leo Group donated more than £125,000 to charities and other good causes across the communities in which it operates.

These included Bradford and District Autistic Support Group, Manorlands Sue Ryder Hospice, at Oxenhope, Northowram Cricket Club and Action for Children.

Catherine Horn, Leo Group’s Community Liaison Manager, said: “It is an incredibly difficult job choosing which good causes and charities will benefit from the fund.

“We really value the Scout movement and all that they do; their core values are very admirable, and their musicians that frequently appear at many public events including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee last year, are supremely talented.

“It would be such a shame if the young musicians couldn’t perform because they couldn’t fund the expensive instruments they require”

Oliver Richardson, from Queensbury Scout Band, said: “We are extremely grateful for the Leo Group grant. Learning to play an instrument can be expensive, and many children and their families can’t afford instruments of their own.

“However, this shouldn’t prevent them from pursuing an interest in music. With so many video games around, and our increasing reliance on technology, music is one of the last ‘real-life’ pursuits that doesn’t involve being glued to a screen all day, and more importantly, one that young people still enjoy”.




Leo Group Enter Jane Tomlinson's 10k Run
- Total raised so far £8,213.92!

Since 2007, Jane Tomlinson’s Run for All has grown to be the region’s largest corporate challenge event and has raised more than £4m for charity to date. 

On 14 July the Leo Group entered a team of 11 runners into the Clarion Leeds 10k Corporate Challenge for the second year running.  Last year we raised a total of £5,000 and this year we have aimed higher - our target was £7,500.  However we are pleased to announce that we have smashed our target and we have so far raised a total of £8,213.92!  But it doesn’t stop there – our team competed on one of the hottest days of the year and did us proud – so to show our continuing support for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal we are asking everyone to dig deep and carry on donating.  It's easy to donate online with a debit or credit card - just go to: https://www.justgiving.com/leogroupltd

The local charities that will benefit from donations relate to ill health, particularly cancer and children’s cancer, cancer treatment and specialist care.

Most of us know the experience and devastation that cancer causes to families, either  through personal experience or that of friends and family - so please donate generously – all donations however large or small are greatly appreciated. 

Thank you very much to everyone who has supported us so far. Your donation will make a real difference.



Leo Group Funds Disabled Riders To Compete At Special Olympics

- 7th May 2013

A Calderdale firm’s community grant scheme is helping fund a group of disabled riders to compete in July’s Special Olympic Games.

The Leo Group, which is one of the country’s leading renewable companies, has given Haworth Riding for the Disabled in excess of £2,000, which will contribute to four riders participating in the equestrian event, which this year is being held at Hartpury College, Gloucester.

The money donated by the Leo Group will go towards paying the entry fees, transport, accommodation, horse feed and providing support for the riders whilst at the Games.

The four, Brian Bentley, Lucy Hargreaves, Benjamin Aston and Jenny Lee are part of a team of 18 representing the Yorkshire and Humberside region, and will be competing in the Countryside Challenge, Dressage and Horse Care and Knowledge categories.

Last year the Leo Group handed more than £125,000 to charities and other good causes across the communities where it operates. These included  Bradford and District Autistic Support Group, Manorlands Sue Ryder Hospice, at Oxenhope, Northowram Cricket Club and Action for Children.

Catherine Horn, Leo Group’s Community Liaison Manager, said: “Once again we were inundated with requests for support, and it is an incredibly difficult job choosing those good causes and charities to benefit from the fund.

“For us, Haworth Riding for the Disabled ticked all the boxes. Not being able to send the riders to the Special Olympic Games due to a lack of money would have been heart breaking.

“The Leo Group Community Grant now means they can go and compete against other riders from across the country – and hopefully come back with a clutch of medals.”

Jane Lawrence from Haworth Riding for the Disabled, said: “We are eternally grateful to the Leo Group for considering our community grant application.

“Raising money for any organisation gets harder by the year. Thanks to the Leo Group, we now have the necessary finances to send the four riders to the games.”

Haworth Riding for the Disabled was formed in 2001 with one rider, one pony and three volunteers. It now has ten horses, more than 60 volunteers and caters for around 150 riders, both adult and children.




And They’re Off! Halifax Firm Aims To De-Throne The ‘Neigh-Ning Champion’ In Mascot Gold Cup Race

- 22nd April 2013

Just three weeks after a Yorkshire horse romped to victory in the Grand National for the first time in 53 years, a Calderdale recycling company is hoping to follow in its hoofprints by being first past the post in another big race with a difference – this time for mascots!

Gary Kingdon is saddled with the hopes of the Swalesmoor-based Leo Group as he takes part in the world’s biggest mascot race at Wetherby Racecourse on Sunday (April 28) – screened in front of millions on TV.

Dressed as Sonny the Sunflower, Gary will be helping to boost the profile – and charity funds – of event organisers Sue Ryder as he jockeys for position with more than 70 of the UK’s top mascots.

Between him and victory is in a one furlong race over eight fences, staged as part of the track’s annual ‘family day’.

A planning manager for the company’s pet food operations, he has spent the past month in training as part of his bid to de-throne two-times winner and “neigh-ning champ” Eddie the ‘Edgehog, from Cheshire.

Community engagement manager for the Leo Group, Catherine Horn, said: “We donated more than £125,000 to charities and good causes last year and Sue Ryder was among those to benefit.

“The work of the charity touches the lives of so many people at the heart of our local community that we are supporting them again this year.

“Running in their Mascot Gold Cup is one way in which we are doing so, with the aim of raising money while having a bit of fun at the same time.”




Danny's Bristling With Pride After Boosting Prostate Charity's Work

- 12th December 2012

Things have got rather hairy for the Leo Group recently but all in the good name of charity!

Our newly-moustachioed managing director Danny Sawrij raised £429.50 to boost the fight against prostate and testicular cancer as part of '€˜Movember'€™.

The biggest men'€™s health charity event of the year encourages people to grow facial hair to raise vital funds and awareness.

It is run by Prostate Cancer UK, whose Chief Executive Owen Sharp said:

"€œWithout the support of Movember, we would not be able to continue to fund innovative research or provide support and information to men at a time when they need it most."

"€It is a sad fact that men's health has too long been neglected as an issue, both in terms of investment in research, survivorship and awareness.'€"

Danny said: "The new look proved a talking point which is exactly what I wanted to achieve. I was delighted to join in an event which puts men'€™s health firmly in the spotlight and am very grateful to everyone who helped me raise such a tremendous amount for charity."



Next Round of Leo Group Community Funding Launched

- 16th November 2012

The next round in Leo Group initiative to support grassroots organisations across Bradford and Calderdale is getting underway.

The Leo Group Community Fund is inviting applications from charities and good causes working with children and young people to share in thousands of pounds of grants.

Since the initiative was launched last year, seven organisations have already been awarded much-needed funding of up to £2,500 each directly benefiting more than 200 youngsters as a result.

From Monday November 12 until the deadline of Friday February 1, the company is seeking submissions from across the community for its next round of grants.

"As a major employer, we are proud to be at the heart of the community and - through the fund, - have created a platform for injecting cash back into it to benefit local people long-term, said community engagement officer Catherine Horn."

"€œIt is a great opportunity for good causes to gain funds of up to £2,500 to continue, expand or improve the good work they do."

"€œWe'€™re delighted to be able to help them make such a positive difference to the lives of so many young people.€"

The fund is particularly keen to hear from good causes involved in sporting activities, educational projects, cultural and environmental.

Successful bids for cash have included those from Northowram Fields junior cricket club for improved training facilities; the Bradford Stepping Stones project to help boost the self-esteem and confidence of children living in care; and the Aqua Clinic in Shipley for fun hydro sessions for people with learning and physical disabilities.

Another recipient, Bradford and District Autism Support Group, was able to buy much-needed new play equipment with its grant. Service coordinator Dave Riley summed up the thoughts of many successful applicants when he said:

"We are very grateful to the Leo Group for their very generous donation, which supports our plans to take our work into a new era. The money allows us to purchase a number of items for our games room as well as funding a new range of activity sessions."

"œLike all charities we rely extensively on donations from individuals and businesses. Without them we could not provide the level of support for people with autism as well as their family members."

Application forms, and guidelines for making a submission, are available to download from the Community Fund section on the Leo Group'€™s website www.leogroupltd.co.uk.



Bingley Footballers Aim High After Netting Sponsorship Deal

- 20 September 2012

West Yorkshire environmental company has extended its programme of community support by backing a town'€™s football team in its bid to reach new heights.

The Leo Group, the recycling specialists which owns Omega Proteins in Thornton, Bradford, has signed a sponsorship deal with Bingley Town FC.

The club currently plays in the Craven & District League Division 2 and is also the outlet for youngsters from Bingley Juniors who have boys'€™ and girls'€™ sides from under 5s right through to under 18s.

Andy Ryan, club secretary of Bingley Town FC, said: '€œThe link-up is a huge helping hand to our club€“ it enables us to purchase kit and equipment as well as cover running costs so that we can provide the opportunity for people in our community to play football.

"€œOur aim is to bring players through the system and into open age football, increasing its reputation in the region and aiming one day to reach the county amateur leagues and beyond."

"Companies like the Leo Group are the club'€™s lifeblood and through their support and sponsorship play an important role in helping us to achieve our goals.€"

"Through its recently-launched '€œCommunity Fund'€, the Leo Group has already presented more than £10,000 in grants to a range of charities and good causes in need of support to maintain their work in the community."

Its community engagement officer, Catherine Horn, said: "We value Bingley Town'€™s ambitions and hope our support will help them go from strength-to-strength both on the field as well as off it, where they are at the very heart of the community."

"€œThis sponsorship is over and above the contribution we make to many local sporting clubs via the fund and forms another extension of the company'€™s programme of support for a community which provides so many of our home-grown staff."

Using the latest green technology, the Leo Group processes animal by-products and converts them into renewable energy sources. Each year, from the waste it collects, it extracts over 70m litres of animal protein and provides more than 130,000 tonnes of ingredients to the pet food industry.




Young Calderdale Cricketers Bowled Over By Firm'€™s Support

- 5 September 2012

HOWZAT! A Calderdale cricket club has hit upon a season-long winning streak after a local company stepped in to give a much-needed boost to its training facilities.

Northowram Fields Cricket Club had been stumped in its quest for success after practising in nets that had fallen into disrepair and a bowling strip suffering from years of wear and tear.

But all that changed after it was handed an £800 grant from the Community Fund run by the Leo Group, the Swalesmoor-based company that specialises in renewable energy.

The award was used to repair existing nets, buy new ones, and make much-needed improvement to the artificial wicket sparking a revival in the club'€™s fortunes.

The club can now add double champions to its roll of honour after its Under-11s side finished the 2012 season undefeated – winning the Halifax League as well as lifting the Collinson Cup.

"€œIn junior cricket, and at this age, that'€™s pretty impressive, said Rob Larner, the club'€™s First XI vice-captain and a member of its ground committee."

"€œThanks to the fantastic new equipment and facilities, I am sure the quality of the coaching we have been able to provide to the children has played a big part in their success."

"€œChildren across all age groups benefit from the equipment and we have had impressive results all year from all of our junior teams."

"We are planning to run winter academies in 2012/13 and again the new equipment will be put to good use in the development of our juniors."

The Leo Group'€™s recently-launched '€œCommunity Fund'€ has already distributed more than £10,000 to a range of good causes across the Yorkshire heartland where its work creates employment opportunities for locals in some cases saving some charities from withdrawing much-needed services or even closure.

Its community engagement officer, Catherine Horn, said: "We are delighted that these budding cricketing stars have translated our grant into a Halifax sporting success story so quickly."

The majority of the team also represented Northowram Junior School in the Yorkshire finals of the Kwik Cricket tournament, held at Headingley - the home of Yorkshire County Cricket Club. They beat all the other teams to be crowned County Champions.




Yorkshire Energy Firm Raises Most Cash for 'Jane's Appeal'

- 5 September 2012

Supporters from around the world have helped a West Yorkshire environmental company to be crowned corporate champions in a flagship fund-raising event to commemorate the work of Jane Tomlinson.

Nine foot-sore colleagues from the Leo Group, which is based in Bradford and Halifax, took part in the Jane Tomlinson'€™s Asda Foundation Run For All Leeds 10K in July, raising almost £5,000.

The company came '€œtop of the jogs'€ after beating more than 50 other companies taking part in the Corporate Challenge to raise the most sponsorship for Jane'€™s Appeal and a series of other good causes.

This was achieved despite the fact that for most members of the team, this was their first 10k race but, running alongside the likes of ex-England and Leeds defender Danny Mills and top soccer referee Howard Webb, they took it in their stride.

Leo Group managing director, Danny Sawrij, was among those who took up the challenge in Jane'€™s honour and thanked all those who supported the team'€™s efforts. He said: '€"As one of the UK'€™s foremost recycling companies, we are more used to creating energy rather than expelling it."

"€œBut it is a tribute to the esteem in which Jane is held that our efforts were supported not just locally, but also nationally and even internationally as word of our involvement spread."

"We are a home-grown Yorkshire company and proud of it and are tremendously proud of our efforts and the role we have played in making this year'€™s event the most successful yet."

"We are thrilled to be part of a wider Yorkshire business community, and its supporters, which has pushed the boundaries to support the memory and work of Jane in such a positive and long-lasting way. We hope other companies follow in our steps€“ and running shoes€“ next year."

He added: "We thank the generosity of all those who have contributed to so many good causes as a result of our efforts their support will make such a real difference to so many people'€™s lives."

The event is Yorkshire'€™s biggest 10k race, drawing over 8,000 participants.

Funds raised from this year'€™s event will go to partner charities; Macmillan, Martin House Children'€™s Hospice, Leeds Children's Hospital, Alzheimer'€™s Society, Yorkshire Cancer Research as well as Jane'€™s Appeal.

The Leo Group is at the forefront of the UK and Europe'€™s waste collection and recycling industry, specialising in turning it into everything from '€œgreen'€ energy to pet food.

The company'€™s recently-launched '€œCommunity Fund'€ has already distributed more than £10,000 to a range of good causes across the Yorkshire heartland where its work creates employment opportunities for loacls in some cases saving some charities from withdrawing much-needed services or even closure.

Among those to have benefited so far are the Bradford Stepping Stones project helping vulnerable teenagers move from local authority care to a home of their own; the Aqua Clinic in Shipley which organises swimming sessions for people with autism, learning difficulties and physical disabilities; and Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

The team comprised: Danny Sawrij, Mick Sheehan, Steven Mottram, Michael Dean,
Brian Maguire, Jane Scott, Joanne Sawrij, Alison Bracewell and Paul Whalen

 



Helping Young People Fulfil Their Potential Is Child'€™s Play After Leo Group'€™s Latest Community Grant

- 24 May 2012

A group of neglected young people living across Bradford and Keighley are to get a helping hand with a difference as they move from local authority care to a home of their own.

The West Yorkshire environmental specialists, the Leo Group, have donated £2,130 to the Bradford Stepping Stones project so it can add an extra dimension to its work supporting vulnerable teenagers through this transition.

The money is being used to pay for an overnight residential trip designed to help team building and boost the young people'€™s self-esteem and confidence.

Catherine Horn, community engagement officer for the Leo Group, said: "€œThe trip will give the young people a rare opportunity to develop their interpersonal skills in an idyllic location - away from their usual inner city surroundings."

"€œThe initiative will also help them come together as they prepare to move on to a new era in their life, and in a way that they would not normally get the chance to experience."

The Leo Group, which has bases in both Bradford and Halifax, made the donation through its Community Fund, which was set up last year to support local good causes make a difference to people'€™s lives.

The Bradford Stepping Stones project is run by the charity Action for Children, which is the largest provider of family support services in the UK, working with nearly 200,000 children, young people and their families as part of 480 initiatives nationwide.

Bradford Stepping Stones supports local young people as they reach the age when they have to leave local authority care and start to live independently.

The project does many things to make this time easier and more positive for them, including finding them a safe and welcoming home, a job or training opportunities and helping them to manage their finances.

The project works with people who can offer young people that crucial first stepping stone to independent living - somewhere to live, a room of their own and support from someone who cares.

Does your spare room have potential? If so, you could open the door to a young person's future and in return receive a generous weekly allowance, ongoing support and the chance to help a young person reach their full potential. For more information please call Kath on 07904 105930




Special Needs Project is Latest Beneficiary of Leo Group'€™s Community Award

- 1 May 2012

An organisation which helps young people with special needs is the latest recipient of a Calderdale-based renewable energy company'€™s Community Fund.

The Leo Group has donated £2,200 to The Aqua Clinic, Shipley to help it fund sessions for people with autism, physical disabilities and learning difficulties.

One of the main beneficiaries of the funding will be SNOOP (Special Needs Objective Outreach Project). The not-for-profit organisation, which is based in Bradford, was established in 2000 and provides care and support for those aged between two and 25 with learning difficulties.

Amongst its regular activities are days out, a Before and After School Club, and the aqua clinic sessions.

Carol Beardmore, co-founder of SNOOP, said: "The Leo Group'€™s donation and recognition of our work means a great deal to all our staff, volunteers and members."

"We'€™re honoured to have been chosen by the company and the grant means we can continue funding these sessions at the Aqua Clinic. Without it there was a danger we would have had to pare back some of our work to the detriment of our service users."

Catherine Horn, Leo Group'€™s Community Liaison Manager, said: "Once again we were inundated with requests from local clubs, organisations and voluntary bodies."

"It was very difficult job choosing who was to be a beneficiary, but the application was very compelling indeed. We are delighted to be helping this worthwhile organisation provide these fun hydro sessions."

"We'd have liked to have given a grant to every applicant, but sadly that just can'€™t be the case."




Leo Group Announces Funding for Hospice in Oxenhope

- 6th December 2011

The Leo group community fund has made one of its first grant awards to Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

The Hospice already provides a bereavement programme, where trained staff and volunteers, keep in contact with bereaved relatives and help them deal with their loss. The Leo Group funding will specifically support bereavement counselling for young children between 7 and 11 and young adults up to the age of 22. Leo Group’s financial support will ensure the continuation of bereavement counselling to children and young adults.

In addition to counselling, Leo group will contribute to funding a weekend bereavement session held in the Yorkshire Dales and transport for members of the counselling groups and their close family to the Mascot Gold Cup which is held every year at Wetherby Races and is a major fundraising event for Sue Ryder.

Danny Sawrij, Managing Director of the Leo Group said, “The running costs of the Sue Ryder Hospices services amount to £2.7 million every year, and £1.6 million has to be funded from voluntary giving. We recognise the importance of the good work that the people at Manorlands Hospice do and are proud of our contribution to ensure continued emotional support for children and young adults following the passing of a loved one.”

 


Child's Play as Leo Group Give Cash Boost to Autism Charity

- 6 December 2011

Leo Group is pleased to announce that a charity that supports people with autism across Bradford and Calderdale is the latest good cause to benefit from the community fund.

Bradford and District Autistic Support Group has been handed £1,688.17 from the Leo Group – at the forefront of the UK environmental sector with bases in Bradford and Halifax  – to help fund activities and play equipment which will add an extra dimension to the social skills sessions it stages. The activities focus on social interaction, team games, new interests and creative pursuits for children aged 11-18.

The charity supports up to 600 people of all ages across Bradford and Halifax. In many parts of the community it helps, the prevalence of autism is more than three times the national average.  With long-established funding streams from the NHS and Bradford Council either lost or under threat, the charity is battling to raise money from other sources to ensure its valued role continues.

It has used the Leo Group grant to purchase a new pool table, and a table top football and air hockey set. In addition, it will enable the charity to develop the social skills of young people by taking them on activity days, such as ten-pin bowling and music production sessions.

The charity, based on Caledonia Road, is the second in the district to benefit from the Leo Group’s Community Fund.

David Riley, Service Coordinator at Bradford and District Autistic Support Group said: “For more than 20 years we have provided a much-needed lifeline to people living in the community with autism and their carers.

"We are very grateful to the Leo Group for their very generous donation, which supports our plans to take our work into a new era. The money allows us to purchase a number of items for our games room as well as funding a new range of activity sessions.

"We are looking at throwing open our doors to other like-minded charities in the district, so they can also take advantage of our play facilities.  This donation will therefore also benefit them.

“Like all charities we rely extensively on donations from individuals and businesses. Without them we could not provide the level of support for people with autism as well as their family members.”

Danny Sawrij, managing director of The Leo Group, said: “The fund was set up to help good causes just like Bradford and District Autistic Support Group continue and expand the important role it plays at the heart of our local community.

“We are delighted the fund has again been able to help another worthwhile local charity in the Bradford and Calderdale area.

“We look forward to seeing how the children develop through the activities we are funding."




Queensbury Name Is Set In Stone, Thanks To The Leo Group

The boulders, located at each of the main roads into Queensbury, have been provided by the company to highlight the contribution made by the community.

Brian Maguire of the Leo Group said: “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to fund these boundary stones, which mark the approach to Queensbury.

“They pay tribute to Queensbury’s best known export, the Black Dyke Mills Band, who have helped put this part of the country on the map.”

The boundary stones were officially unveiled at a dedication ceremony attended by Queensbury’s three ward councillors and members of the band.
