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.
