Continuing the friendship with Leeds Mencap

Leeds Mencap presented Winston Solicitors with their supporters brick

A firm friendship has been forged between the lovely local charity Leeds Mencap and Winston Solicitors. Leeds Mencap are an independent charity who, for over 65 years, have supported the people of Leeds with learning disabilities. 

As an independent charity each year they have to secure all of their own funding to enable them to continue to support the 450+ families in Leeds who use their services.

Winston Solicitors were honoured to be presented with their supporters brick, following on from the various fundraising they have undertaken on behalf of the charity. Key supporters have been presented with a brick, to say thank you for their support.
