Time to Take a Seat: Successful Applications Announced!

When, back in September 2021 we announced we were accepting applications for another round of community benches, we had no idea just how many people would respond.

It’s been a lot of work and a real joy to read your applications. Choosing the winners was not an easy task, and as ever there were applications that were superb but just didn’t quite make it.

The good news is that we have gone through all the applications and, in partnership with Time to Shine at Leeds Older People’s Forum are please to announce the winners are:

St. Vincent De Paul Society / OPAL
Calm & Centred – Mary Seacole Memorial Garden
Rawdon Community Library
Leeds Mencap
Holbeck Together
Leeds Jewish Housing Association
Bramley Elderly Aid
Connecting Crossgates

As the projects move forward we’ll be following their progress and will be posting updates on our website.
