Dear Lovely Community Shop Trust Team
Thank you for the incredible support which you have provided to families who have numerous complex needs including Social Care involvement, poor housing, domestic abuse, mental health, drugs and alcohol abuse.
The Leeds Community Shop Trust is an amazing charity which makes a remarkable difference to families with children. You provide a personal service where you listen to the issues and assess the needs of the families. The funding you provide raises outcomes and in many cases ensures that children can reside within their family.
The Leeds Community Trust has been a loyal charity to our support service for 15 years which has enabled many of our families to restart fresh beginnings, which has lead to independent living and giving back clients’ self confidence and self esteem to face the future especially in this current economic climate. Our clients are so grateful for all they receive from the Leeds Community Trust as with their help they are able to change a shell into a home for the children which gives the families a foundation to build on for their security and future plans and dreams.
Everyone deserves a second chance in life and with the Leeds Community Trust own ethos that allows people that chance and make dreams come true. All staff thank the Leeds Community Trust for their support over the years and hopefully for many years to come.
What a lovely charity shop! My Mum and I had gone for a wander in Meanwood on our return to Leeds and we nipped in here, drawn in by the delights in the window. They had a number of gorgeous tea sets, bowls and other things in the window so we nipped in for a proper rummage.
I managed to pick up a huge coffee pot set for five pounds and a large fruit bowl for three pounds, all specially wrapped up by the lovely staff. It has to be said they were particularly helpful and friendly, which is wonderful given that I’m assuming they’re volunteers.
The shop was abuzz with folks looking for a bargain, and whilst the majority of the space is taken up with clothing, there’s plenty of ornamentals, kitchen ware, games, and other oddments to pick up. If you’ve the patience to rummage through you’re sure to find a fab new frock, pair of trousers, tea set and much more.
A delightful find and I shall be back soon!
