We are a charity based in inner-city Leeds that uses music training to help local people improve the quality of their lives. We help people to gain control over their lives and find avenues into employment by providing the opportunity to learn a variety of skills and to develop their musical talent.
By doing this, we also provide a basis for empowerment, confidence building and making music contacts that will become ever more useful as their abilities continue to grow towards their future.
How about helping Cloth Cat raise money? Let’s see what we can achieve.
We Need Your Support…..
If you’d like to take part, you can simply click on the ‘Support Us’ tab then select your amount and hit the donate button.
You can support one of the Cloth Cat activities which is providing music therapy in the specialist NHS mental health wards at Newsam Centre and Becklin Centre by having a dress down day on Friday 29th November.
Up to now these activities have been supported by local bands volunteering to play gigs which raise the required money to fund these twice weekly sessions. Every now and then we need to top up the funding to keep the work going and this is where you can help it to run for another 6 months.
So lets find out more than you probably wanted to know about your colleagues and support a worthwhile cause.
All you have to do is spread the word among the staff to wear their old/favorite or local band T-shirt and bring a donation. Alternatively you can go to our website www.clothcatleeds.org.uk and click on the ‘Support Us’ tab then select your amount and hit the donate button.
*Cash collected can be transferred by bank to Cloth Cat via your HR department or an individual. However, if you would like to come and meet us and have a tour of the studios you can bring it in person.
