There is a strong commitment within the ethos of Wade’s Charity to support all sections of the community residing in Leeds. Within this wide category are grants made to support and improve community facilities and those made to provide and support community activities.
Supporting community buildings including church halls, community centres and such like has been a feature of Wade’s grant making for many years and is specified within the Charity scheme. Improvement of community facilities enables more people to participate in local activities and to also take pride in their local environment.
Recent grants for the improvement of community facilities have been awarded to the following organisations:
Gipton Methodist Church
Jigsaw Visitor Centre
Many grants are given to support opportunities for all sections of the community to come together and participate in recreational and social activities. Whilst the opportunity to socialise or enjoy recreational activity is the main focus of many of these grants, the recipient organisations are often supporting marginalised groups who may have limited access to enjoy such activities.
Examples of recent grant recipients are:
West Yorkshire Chaplaincy
Caring For Life
Friends of PHAB
Hyde Park Unity Day
Little Sisters of the Poor
Sikh Sports UK
