Holbeck charity brings snacks to Cross Flatts parkrun

People Matters, a Holbeck-based social care organisation and charity headed on down to Cross Flatts parkrun on Saturday (8 June 2024) to raise money and awareness for the organisation.

It was the first time we had done an event of this kind and we had lots of our members, volunteers and staff take part in the event to smash a 5K run – all before breakfast!

The organisation has provided support and services to adults and young people with a learning disability and/or who are autistic in and around Leeds since 2002. They provide a whole range of holistic services including 1-1, employment support social groups and wellbeing groups, to enable people who are disadvantaged because of their disability to live their life the way they wish to through the creation of opportunities and experiences.

People Matters also have a micro social enterprise, called Nourishing People, within the organsation developing and selling healthy snacks to local people and business, all run by our members. Some of the tasty snacks were on sale at the event too. If you would like to support the charity or find out more about them please contact info@peoplemattersleeds.co.uk or call (0113) 234 6896.
