A Charitable Month for the Leonard Design Team

Earlier this year, the Leonard Design team rallied together for multiple charitable causes all worth shouting about! Take a look at what we have been up to!

The NACL Charity Bowling Event

This year marked the first event held by the Nottingham Architects’ Charity League, bringing together local architectural practices to take part in a bowling competition. With thanks to some amazing sponsors, every practice that took part were able to donate at least £500 to their chosen local charity.

Team Leonard Design hit the lanes and managed to come away as the winner of the whole competition. This resulted in the team being awarded a huge £2,000 to be donated to a chosen local charity, Tara’s Angels. Take a look at the giant cheque we received!

Tara’s Angels is an organisation set up in memory of Tara Newbold, a mother of three who sadly lost her life in 2016, after being a victim of domestic violence. Tara’s family and friends decided to raise awareness and support vulnerable women and children across Nottinghamshire. These families flee their homes sometimes at such short notice that themselves and their children leave with little more than the clothes they are wearing. They are put up in refuges and safe house amongst the county and are supported by the charity to try and start afresh to rebuild their lives for themselves and their children.

Tough Mudder

Not only have the team taken on the polished lanes of the bowling alley, but also the muddy mess of Belvoir Castle for Tough Mudder. The Leonard Design team really got stuck in (literally in some cases), both on the course and in raising money. With thanks to multiple generous donations the team were able to raise just over £1,450, again for our local charity of choice Tara’s Angels.

Suit Donation Success Stories

Earlier this year, led by director John Morgan, the Leonard Design team encouraged local men to donate their suits to help recently released inmates from HMP Nottingham. Helping them stand tall and feel amazing when looking for new jobs. The initiative has been a resounding success with multiple recipients of clothing and we are now getting news through of multiple full-time employments secured!
