Summer 100 Club Event at Nexus

On the 27th June; Leeds Community Foundation hosted their annual Summer 100 Club event at Nexus. Nexus is a community for technology businesses of all shapes and sizes that work, connect and collaborate with the research and innovation expertise at the University of Leeds.

The event brought together our 100 club supporters and gave an overview of the impact of the 100 Club. It also welcomed several new members eager to support the work we do.

Speakers included Timothy Hodgson from Westcourt Properties; who were the third organisation to join the club. His speech gave a brilliant insight into the importance of businesses supporting the Third Sector.

Three Young Women from Getaway Girls who have received funding from Leeds Community Foundation; spoke about the importance of groups like Getaway Girls in empowering young women – building up their confidence, skills and driving them to take positive risks.

Thank you to all who attended the event and to Nexus for hosting our event.
