This new and exciting partnership, launched this week, brings together 12 women and girls organisations in Leeds to empower women and girls to lead healthier, safer and more fulfilled lives.
I was pleased to supply a cake (a celebration without a cake is just a meeting, after all) for the launch event, and some cupcakes for the Leeds Women’s Aid stall.
£2m of lottery funding has made the project possible, with Leeds Women’s Aid the lead agency. More details can be found here, and you can follow WLL on Twitter here
Cupcake Crumbs are very happy to announce today that Leeds Women’s Aid is the fantastic charity we are supporting this year.
From Leeds Women’s Aid:
Our mission is to protect women and children in Leeds from the damage that domestic violence can inflict on their lives. We believe that all women and children have the right to live their lives free from fear and harm. We will achieve this by providing women with choices from a range of services including temporary supported housing, outreach support, telephone support and floating support.
At Cupcake Crumbs we began our support today by donating some food and toiletry items for the supported housing scheme, and also a box of cupcakes for the office staff.
Watch this space for some special cupcake boxes with an amount from each sale being passed straight on to the charity.
