To raise money for the charity Latch, the Allsop team in Leeds hosted a fun sports day in September for clients at Leeds Dock, followed by pie and mash at The Tetley.
55 clients attended the event and an amazing £2,600 was raised for Latch. The sports day included games such as the egg & spoon race, archery, and various challenges. Well done to the winning team- Wainwrights, 2nd place Shoosmiths and 3rd place was Niemen.
The charity provides supported housing for young homeless people. Through purchasing empty and run-down houses, it is able to refurbish them to provide quality and affordable accommodation for those in need. It also provides coaching services for its tenants through a range of activities that address their health and wellbeing. It also increases the employability of long-term unemployed people by giving them volunteering opportunities on their construction sites.
