We are extremely grateful to Eliot Grant and all those who involved at The Skills Network who raised over £4,000 for Leeds Mind in October.
The fundraising campaign was launched by Elliot Grant who is the co-owner of the Selby-based training provider. The Skills Network’s fundraising activities included organising internal initiatives across their Selby and London offices, and culminated in the organisation hosting their annual charity golf tournament at Leeds Golf Club.
The charity golf tournament saw over 80 golfers and 20 teams participate, with several Yorkshire-based companies in attendance. The day was complete with an evening performance from Leeds comedian (and Britain’s Got Talent finalist) Micky P Kerr, who entertained guests with his brilliant and amusing songs.
Speaking on the campaign, our Corporate Fundraising Officer Charli Brunning said:
“We are extremely lucky and grateful to be supported by amazing and passionate companies across Yorkshire. Fundraising from companies such as The Skills Network is hugely important in enabling us as a charity to support our community’s needs best.
We’d like to thank everyone over at The Skills Network for their donation and for supporting our cause.”
Eliot Grant, Co-Owner of The Skills Network, who led the fundraising effort said:
“Leeds Mind is such a great charity whose work in supporting individuals with all forms of mental health issues is truly remarkable. Mental health touches many families, whether directly or indirectly, and we are extremely honoured to be able to support such a worthwhile organisation.
I am so proud of everyone who has supported this fundraising activity for such an important cause. This includes everyone who attended the golf day, friends, family, suppliers and all staff who have dug deep, not forgetting all of the local businesses and sponsors who supplied prizes to help raise funds and support our events throughout September.”
