Holbeck Together host community roadshow

Holbeck Together in partnership with the Leeds City Council Mobile Community Hub Bus held a Community Roadshow event at St Matthew’s Community Centre on Thursday 14 March.

We invited many different partners to come together so that the local community had the opportunity to access many different services, be better informed and for us as partners to come together to network.

Catherine ReubenSales & Business Development Executive at Westward Care/ (Pennington Court), commented:

Holbeck Together and the Community Hub bus would also like to say a special thank you to Cllr Andrew Scopes and Cllr Annie Maloney (Labour, Beeston & Holbeck) for supporting the event through attendance and funding via the Inner South Community Committee.

The funding supported the cost of catering for the event where we managed to service over 90 hot breakfast sandwiches and a continental breakfast option.
