Tomoro Agency take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks!

Our wonderful corporate partners Tomoro Agency have recently tackled the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge. The weather was treacherous however, they still completed the challenge and managed to raise an incredible £1145 for us here at Leeds Mencap.

Tomoro holds a special place in our hearts, as Hannah, their Digital Account Manager is the granddaughter of the late Joyce Fieldhouse, who was one of Leeds Mencap’s founding members and honorary president. Hannah now also lends her skills volunteering weekly at Leeds Mencap as a Marketing and Communications Volunteer. Here’s what she had to say about the hike:

“Leeds Mencap is an amazing charity supporting families all over Leeds. We chose to fundraise for Leeds Mencap because they are a charity close to our hearts with Joyce Fieldhouse, founder member and former honorary president, being a close family member who passed away last year. Joyce was an amazing woman who set up Leeds Mencap nearly 70 years ago as there was no support back then for people with autism and learning disabilities. We are very proud to be helping such a wonderful charity and a great cause’.

Thank you to everyone who participated and donated to this fundraiser. As we are an independent charity, we rely completely on the generosity of businesses and individuals like those at Tomoro to allow us to continue providing our vital support to young people with learning disabilities and their families.

It relies on charitable donations in order to continue its vital work.

This year has been very challenging for the charity sector and Leeds Mencap is no difference. In a recent survey, 94% of Leeds Mencap families said that they have felt more isolated during Covid-19. The impact of the pandemic on families who have children and young people with learning disabilities has put both parents and their children under incredible strain, with many experiencing increased anxiety and worsening mental and emotional health.

Cath Lee, CEO of Leeds Mencap, says: “We are absolutely delighted with the generosity shown by Stowe Family Law. By supporting Leeds Mencap they will help us to continue to support families when they need us most.”

Tom Suttill at Stowe Family Law LLP says “We are proud to be a member of the Leeds Mencap Business Club. As a family law firm that was founded in Leeds, we feel the importance of supporting local families, which is why we’ve chosen to partner with Leeds Mencap who make a real difference to children and young people with learning disabilities in Leeds. I would encourage other local businesses to get involved and help the charity’s wonderful work continue to grow.”
