Introducing the Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust Ball
The first ever Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust Glamorous Black Tie Ball will take place on June 2nd at The Marriot Hotel and Leeds City Magazine are delighted to announce that we’ll be the official media partners, helping to promote the event and to raise awareness for the charity.
The night will be a fantastic opportunity to raise money for the Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust, as well as being a great chance to enjoy yourself with all guests treated to a VIP red carpet arrival, a fizz reception, a 3 course meal with wine, live entertainment and lots more surprises for just £40.
We’re also happy to announce that Leeds born singer Tom Bleasby will be performing at the ball. Tom, who rose to fame by performing on X Factor and duetting with Jessie J on The Ellen Show, told us “It’s an important cause. Loneliness can really creep up on people, especially as you get older and I think it’s important that we offer a hand so they’re not alone.”
All profits from the ball will go to the Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust and some sponsorship opportunities are still available. They were set up in 2012 and quickly the charity identified social isolation among older people as a major issue in Leeds. Through regular events in different venues across Leeds, the charity are helping elderly people all over the South Leeds area. The charity has established a popular Sunday Lunch Club, their Cafe and hosts a 1940’s evening complete with a singing war time female trio.
Their work is vital in making sure everyone in the South Leeds area is looked after. To donate, please get in touch by visiting their website at www.cbft.co.uk

The Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust are very pleased to announce the very first CBFT Summer Ball on Friday 2nd June 2017 at the Marriott Hotel Leeds. More details to follow...
Well, we have had a fabulous day. We've had 75 service users at Vales Circle for a Christmas dinner plus deliveries to as many people. It was a fantastic day, we made a difference to so many people, we couldn't have done without all our many volunteers, so thank you to each & everyone one of you.
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year from all at CBFT! xx
Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust have won a prestigious award! They’ve been given an award in recognition of the outstanding contribution they give to the Outer South Leeds Area by the Outer South Community Comitee.
In 2010, the Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust (CBFT) was set up by friends and family in memory of Ciaran, a young man who died in a motorcycle accident at the age of 19.
The new group was aimed to help both people all over Leeds, identifying ways all social groups can come together to help each other. Mainly, the charity aim to help elderly people.
Quickly, the charity identified social isolation among older people as a major issue. In particular, the charity noticed a need for “out of hours” services and social activities for older people to take place in the evenings, at weekends, and over holiday periods.
Particularly over the busy Christmas period and at times over Summer.
They also identified a need to supplement their activities and other services, provided by statutory and other voluntary sector organisations, and a need for more appropriate “bad weather” services.
Through regular events in different venues across Leeds, the charity are meeting these targets. The charity has established a popular Sunday Lunch Club, the Dementia Cafe and hosts a 1940’s evening complete with a singing war time female trio.
The organisers have worked tirelessly to raise money for the charity as they have also organised a thirteen and a half mile memorial walk, a sponsored sky dive, ladies pamper nights and other themed party evenings.

Recently we had a lovely day with some of our service users doing a photo shoot in the 'Calendar Girls' style & now the calendars are hot off the press!
The calendar is also in memory of Iris Ryan, who is hugely missed by the CBFT team.
Calendars are priced at £7 each with funds going towards providing Christmas Day dinners for isolated & older people in the South Leeds Community.
To order one, please either send a message via Facebook or Twitter or by calling 07535 840424.
It was not your usual event you would find happening at BITMO Gate (Belle Isle) on Saturday (12 September 2015). Margaret Bingham from Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust had organised a photo shoot for the charities fundraising calendar 2016.
CBTF Calendar aren’t doing any ordinary calendar though, because all the women who were friends of the charity had agreed to pose ‘Calendar Girl’ style, and I had been asked to take the photos.
It was a rainy dark morning in Belle Isle last Saturday which didn’t suit my ‘shooting with daylight’ plan. But I was ready for a challenge. All the ladies had already arrived and were soon choosing and writing down their months between them. Bacon sarnies were served and the beauticians Julie and Elissa where there to do hair and makeup. George Longden appeared at the right time to put up the back drop board and then swiftly left.
All the ladies sat patiently but not necessarily quietly has howls of laughter and encouragement were met with disrobing of dressing gowns and adjusting of feather boas. Mandy McKenzie volunteer with CBFT was there as my assistant to help hold the gold bounce back board and straighten scarves.
Halfway through the clouds came over and we decided to take a break. Again in true CBFT style Margaret had ordered a full buffet to keep the troops going along with a game of bingo. Lucky Miss November won both full house and line.
Look out for the calendars which will be available for purchase at £7.00 soon. Each month’s photo has been tastefully taken with laughter and love to support for the continuing efforts of the Ciaran Bingham Foundation Trust.
