Unity Homes & Enterprise have been announced as the main sponsor of the 2013 Beeston Festival.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Chief Executive Ali Akbor said:
“Unity Homes and Enterprise is committed to providing housing choice, improving life opportunities and addressing inequalities across Leeds – which is why we are proud to support the Beeston Festival. Unity owns a number of properties in the multi-cultural neighbourhood of Beeston and we endeavour to maintain an active presence in the communities in which we work.”
The event, which will be held in Cross Flatts Park on Saturday 8th June, will feature the usual mix music, dance, food, fun fair, bazaar, sports and other activities for people of all ages.
