Community
Proud to be supporting our local community

Linley and Simpson are proud to be working closely with the communities in areas where our branches are based. The company offers support to local charities, schools and sports clubs with a particular focus on helping children.

We promote an inclusive approach amongst our employees and encourage involvement in all of our community and charity activities from junior staff and new starters through to management and Directors. As such, we have nominated a Brand Ambassador for each of our branches and departments who work alongside our Head of Community and Charity Engagement, Emily Wilkinson, to create a positive social impact on the communities and environments in which we operate.

Linley and Simpson are honoured to be in partnership with Martin House Children’s Hospice and proud to support them in their mission 'To help children and young people with a life-limiting condition, along with their families, to live well and fully, offering the best possible end of life care and support to the family in bereavement'.

We were thrilled to donate £25,000 to Martin House in 2014 and are committed to ongoing fundraising efforts to help them achieve their aim of 'providing every child and young person with access to palliative care where and when they need it'.

Fundraising events for this year include a raffle to Win a week's additional holiday from work and a customer service questionnaire for all our clients with a £1 donation by Linley and Simpson to Martin House for every response received.

The partnership is further supported by our membership of the Martin House Business Club.

In addition to our fundraising efforts for Martin House, our staff are all encouraged to volunteer for Martin House and are given paid time off during work hours to carry this out. Activities planned so far this year include manning a stall at Wetherby market to sell Christmas cards and trips out in the vans to help collect stock.

JustGiving Link

Helping children

Linley and Simpson have established links with schools and sports clubs across North and West Yorkshire as part of our initiative to support and inspire local children. From a sporting perspective, this ranges from our largest event to date sponsoring the Brownlee children's triathlon at Ashville in June 2016 through to sponsorship of individual players, sports kits and end of season trophies at football, cricket and rugby clubs across our branch network.

Amongst other activities, we also get involved with summer fairs, Christmas card competitions and creative writing and art projects for the schools. We also attend recruitment fairs to assist children with their all important career decisions.

'Age friendly' initiative

In addition to all of the support we offer to the younger generation, we have also extended our work in the community by signing up to a new Age Friendly Charter which aims to create a more friendly and welcoming environment for the city’s growing number of older people. Our Chapel Allerton branch is the first to become involved in the 'Come in and rest' scheme by opening up their office to older people who may want to take time out to rest or use the toilet. We are in the process of rolling the scheme out across at our other 10 branches throughout Yorkshire. The Charter has been initiated as part of Leeds' membership of the global network of Age Friendly cities, run by the World Health Organisation.
