Here at Lightworks, we are great believers in giving back and helping the community. So, to keep true to our commitment we’ll be taking part in Endure 24 for the second year in a row. Our courageous team members, Mark, Nik, Graeme and Dave will be taking part in the 24-hour relay race on the 1st July in aid of local charity YWCA Yorkshire.
‘Creating a better future for young women, children and families’ is what YWCA Yorkshire aims to do by providing a range of accommodation and support services to empower individuals to live independent, happy and fulfilled lives.
We are extending our support to YWCA Yorkshire as we believe that young women, children and families deserve the best opportunity to thrive, prosper and reach their full potential.
In running Endure 24, we aim to raise the £1,000 needed to send the newly appointed Senior Project Worker, at YWCA, on the Freedom Training programme – a programme, which raises awareness of domestic violence and the characteristics displayed by domestic violence perpetrators all of which helps women end abusive relationships.
Ninety percent of the residents of Peile House (the charity’s home for women and families) have suffered domestic violence, having Freedom Training qualified members of staff means that the programme can run on a ten-week rolling basis for residents and women supported by other agencies in Sheffield.
This year the Endure 24 race will take place at Bramham Park, Leeds and will entail 40-50 kilometres, or just over a marathon, for each team member. To motivate us further please donate whatever you can in support of this charity.
