For 2018 we have chosen to raise funds for MAP Charity, based in Leeds. The charity provides children without access to mainstream education an opportunity to learn through the arts. It gives hope to young people in our society who are being told they have none.
MAP operates from a building called Hope Foundry, where you’ll find the education workshops, studios for local businesses who also support the kids’ development, and a gallery space. MAP runs fundraising parties called Cosmic Slop which have gained international recognition because of the world class soundsystem, with all proceeds going to the education project next door.
Hope Foundry is now under threat of re-development into flats, meaning MAP could lose its home of 10 years. Buying the building is essential for them to continue to help develop the lives of the next generation of young creatives.
You can read more about their inspiring plans for the future, and watch a video made by an ex-student of MAP at their fundraising website here: www.mapcharity.org
We will be running charity fundraisers during the year and any money you donate to our charity tin goes directly to MAP charity.
Thank you for your generosity
