At Victoria Leeds we’re proud to support our local charities through our Positive Places Plan. Every year we select two local charities to be the recipient of our bursary. In July 2019 we put it to the vote and gave our management team the chance to decide. They selected Guide Dogs Leeds and Breast Cancer Haven, who each received £2,500 as part of our bursary funding.
Guide Dogs Leeds
Guide Dogs gives people with sight loss the independence and freedom required to live the life they want to lead. The charities centre in Headingley trains older pups to become working guide dogs. There are currently around 178 working guide dogs in the Leeds/West Yorkshire region.
