Mitzvah Day

LJWB to Support 16 Days of Action Against Abuse

The 16 Days of Action is an international campaign to end violence against women, running from Friday 25th November (the International Day to End Violence against Women) until Saturday 10th December.

On the 25th November we will have a stall with information on Domestic Violence & Abuse at the MAZCC from 10.30 am – 1pm. We will also have a room available to allow us to talk privately with anyone who requires any support or advice.

We have also put secure post boxes in the ground floor toilets (male, female, accessible and baby change) where people can discreetly request a call from a support worker. These boxes will be officially in use from Friday.

For further information please contact Sarah Frost 0113 218 5849.

Winter Will Be Warm With LJWB’s Help

LJWB are delighted to have secured funding from the Leeds Foundation & Leeds City Council as part of a city wide Winter Wellbeing Community Grant. The grant will enable LJWB to put together 100 packs, made up of non-perishable food items and warm clothing to hand out to many elderly & vulnerable people we support. Maurice Esofsky from QLM stores has kindly donated gloves, hats and scarves to start the campaign. Branded LJWB bags containing the goods will be delivered to those in need in the run up to Chanukah which usually brings colder weather and is a time when people can feel lonely & isolated over the holiday period.

The campaign will culminate on the 20th December at LJWB’s Community Celebration at the MAZCC, 5-7pm when the community are invited to join LJWB for a festive celebration, food, children’s activities and the chance to hear about LJWB’s plans for 2017. On this day  LJWB ask the community to support the campaign and bring along any non perishable food items, new, warm winter clothes such as hats, gloves, scarves, socks or hand warmers. There will also be a collection point at The Zone and thewellfairshop, Moortown leading up to the festive celebrations.

If you or anyone you know would benefit from one of our Winter Wellbeing packs please contact the Arnie & Essie Helpline on 0113 218 5875
