29 people from Morgans spent a day volunteering at LEEDS MENCAP, which supports children and adults with learning disabilities at The Vinery Centre and a residential home in Chapel Allerton. This is the second year the Morgans team, in Leeds City Centre and Otley Road in Headingley, have lent a helping hand.
This year volunteers painted the charity’s reception area and sensory room, cleaned all the windows and chairs, the ball pool and balls as well as jet washing the path and outside areas. A dedicated and patient group sorted through all of the jigsaws, counting the pieces, and the heating and cooling system was reprogrammed to be more efficient.
Morgans MD, Jonathan Morgan, says, “We have supported community projects including refurbishing the St George’s Crypt shop on Armley Town Street, bag packing at supermarkets, and tidying up the Hollin Lane Allotments in Meanwood, which are supported by Leeds Community Foundation.
“With our big team we can really make a difference in just one day. Everyone worked hard and it was great to see what a change we were able to make at LEEDS MENCAP.”
Bernie Gahan, from LEEDS MENCAP, says, “To see so many people give up their time and energy to help us was really heartening. We need to raise all our own funds as we are incredibly reliant on donations, and the support provided by Jonathan and his team was invaluable.”
