Leeds Lord Mayor Cllr Jane Dowson unveils the excellent new www.fundingleeds.co.uk website set up by our partners VAL. This is a one stop shop for all funding in Leeds and is the best thing to happen for community groups and charities for years.
Feed Leeds was also delighted to be awarded a certificate for our contribution to the city – along with some absolutely amazing organisations of every shape and hue, including our partners Back to Front and a number of food banks connected via the Food Aid Network. Some fantastic work going on in our city.
