Supporting Local Communities

As 2023 draws to a close and the festive period begins, the season of giving is upon us. At Resource we always try to support our local community and charities in the good work that they do.    

Once again, we are running our #Causewecare appeal. This year we will be supporting children who might not always have access to books or experience the joy of a new book at Christmas time.  

We are delighted to be able to provide books for children of all ages and include a shiny new book voucher for them to enjoy and explore. And as sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Resource, all the gifted books are pre-loved and repurposed.  

Every day is a learning day and encouraging children to read either for educational purposes, fantasy or escapism is a true gift for us.  

The organisations we are supporting this year are:  

Laurence Calvert Academy 

Wortley Community Centre

Leeds Children Charity at Lineham Farm
