Supporting Yorkshire Children's Charity

Monroe are proud sponsors of Yorkshire Children's Charity. 

Yorkshire Children’s Charity was created with one sole purpose; to improve the lives of children living at a disadvantage, be that due to sickness, disability or financial circumstance. 

The charity launched on 01.01.22 and they set their sights high, raising £2.2m in their first 12 months. They are a grant giving organisation, providing support through multiple means, to include wheelchairs, specialist equipment, fun and educational days out, emergency funding for families in desperate need, and much more. They are a charity that asks the families how we can help as opposed to telling them what they can do. 

With 350,000 children living in poverty in the region and 92,000 children living with disabilities, they have a lot that we need to achieve and they can only do this with the support of generous businesses and individuals.

New Charity Partner - Love Leeds Parks

We are pleased to announce that our latest partnership is with Love Leeds Parks whose vision is for everyone in Leeds to have a green space that they love on their doorstep.

"Every day, residents from diverse cultural backgrounds come together in Leeds' 65 community parks to socialise, exercise, relax and play. These parks provide visitors with much needed respite from the intensity of urban living, with many residents turning to their local park to combat loneliness, stress and anxiety. Whether volunteering, picnicking with friends or savouring quiet time with a book, visitors of all ages leave happier, healthier, and benefitting from a stronger connection to both nature and their neighbours.

Despite the important role they play, the future of these community parks is under threat. As budgets continue to be drastically cut, there is a danger parks will significantly deteriorate or be lost altogether. This is why Love Leeds Parks was launched as an independent charity in 2021.

Our mission is to support communities to improve and use their local public green spaces, with a focus on those areas that are most at need."
