Leeds goes the extra mile for Children in Need

Employees at the Leeds are going the extra mile for Children in Need by taking part in a sponsored cycle race.

Five departments from marketing to collections will be competing on Wednesday November 16 to Friday November 18 to try and clock up the most number of miles on an exercise bike. Staff will come in early and give up their lunch hours to get the job done.

On Friday November 18, cowboys, popstars and rugby players will be appearing at the Leeds head office as staff dress as their childhood dreams for the day to coincide with the ‘be what you want to be’ Children in Need theme. Also, one lucky member of staff will have the chance for their dream day to come true as part of a grand raffle that the Leeds is funding to help raise money for the appeal.

Karen Wint, head of marketing & PR at the Leeds, says: “This is a fantastic effort from our staff to raise money for children who need it most. The funds raised for Children in Need will make a real difference to the lives of children in the UK. The charitable spirit really burns bright at the Leeds as staff recently raised over 2,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.”
