Achieving through quality


Leo Group Ladies Show Support for Inspiring Yorkshire Women

20 May 2016

On Friday 20 May 2016, ladies from Leo Group Ltd attended the 30th annual Sue Ryder Yorkshire Women of Achievement Awards at New Dock Hall, Leeds.  The event celebrates women’s achievement across the county – from dynamic business women to inspiring figureheads of communities who dedicate their lives to causes close to their hearts.


10 female employees attended the charity event, along with almost 800 of other attendees, who all gathered together to celebrate the special achievements of the nominees and winners. Jayne Senior was named the Overall Yorkshire Woman of Achievement 2016. Jayne was previously the manager of a project called Risky Business, which was set up to deal with children affected by sexual exploitation.  Sadly, the project got shut down but since then, Jayne has dedicated the past ten years of her life to helping children who have unfortunately been affected by exploitation.

A spokesperson for Leo Group said: “Leo Group has long been a proud supporter of Sue Ryder, and so attending this event was a privilege for us. It was emotional and humbling to listen to the stories told that afternoon – stories of hardship, dedication, achievement, success, hard-work and grit.  These ladies make us proud to be from Yorkshire!” 

This year was a special milestone occasion for the event, as it was the 30th anniversary of the celebration. The afternoon was a great success with lots of money being raised to support the fantastic work that Sue Ryder do.
