Lead Tech’s giving back

By Ryan Smith on February 5, 2020

Lead Tech raised nearly £4000 for charity in 2019

We’re big on giving back here at Lead Tech. 

Every year we ask our colleagues to nominate two charities to support throughout the following 12 months. 

In 2019, our two nominated charities were:

A fantastic result in 2019

Over a number of charity events in 2019, we managed to raise an amazing £3,954.88 with Gift Aid. We spoke to St. Gemma’s Hospice and LINC to find out how that money will go towards helping others.

St Gemma’s Hospice

“Thanks to the money you raised, we can provide five children experiencing a loved one’s illness and death support in our group sessions.

It can also support three days of care for one in-patient staying at the hospice, covering everything from expert care to pain relief and meals.

Plus, we’re sending out two community team members to visit patients in their own home. We can also provide clinical advice and practical support, a three-course meal for one in-patient and buy a patient information pack, giving practical advice to patients and carers.”


“What an absolutely fantastic amount of money raised. I really appreciate all of your hard work and dedication to raise such a huge figure.

We are currently supporting a research nurse that helps our LINC patients onto national clinical trials. This can provide opportunities for new treatments and better outcomes. Your donation will go towards this.”

Charity at Lead Tech in 2020

This year we’ll once again be supporting St. Gemma’s Hospice. As a local charity, and Yorkshire’s largest hospice, it’s one that means a lot to us. We’re proud to be able to continue our partnership with St. Gemma’s Hospice for another 12 months.

We’ll also be supporting The Lily Foundation.

The Lily Foundation was founded in 2007 by Liz Curtis in memory of her daughter Lily, who died from mitochondrial disease at eight months old.

Finding little in the way of specialist knowledge or support available to help her through her ordeal, Liz set out to provide answers for herself and others in her situation.

What began as an informal network of family and friends quickly grew into a national charity which today supports over 750 families.

Lead Tech fundraising events for 2020

As well as our usual office sweepstakes for the Gold Cup, Grand National, Olympics and the European Football Championship, we also have a number of events planned or in the pipeline, including:

  • The Lead Tech Bake Off
  • London to Paris cycle in our in-house gym
  • Obstacle Course events
  • And the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge

You can keep track of all of our upcoming events, and help donate to St. Gemma’s Hospice and The Lily Foundation on our Virgin Money Giving page.
