Get your thinking caps on for the Big Change Big Quiz
Following the official launch of Big Change Leeds last Wednesday (24 October), the people and businesses of Leeds are being asked to come together and help make a big change to the lives of those in need on the streets of Leeds city centre.
The first fundraising event following the launch, The Big Change Big Quiz, will take place next Wednesday (7 November) from 5.30pm at Victoria Gate Casino.
Big Change is a new partnership between LeedsBID and Leeds City Council, with support from Leeds Community Foundation. It has been developed to help support those in need on the streets of Leeds city centre, and aims to question behaviours and raise awareness of alternative ways of giving through Street Support Leeds.
Last week’s launch event was hosted by LeedsBID at its offices on Briggate. The line up of speakers explained the reasons for launching the campaign, what Big Change Leeds endeavours to achieve and how organisations can get behind the campaign and help support this important new initiative.
The event was attended by over 30 businesses, including representatives from key financial and professional services sector organisations including Deloitte, EY, Armstrong Watson and Shulmans, alongside a range of city centre retailers and charitable organisations operating in the city.
The Big Change Big Quiz will take place next Wednesday (7 November) from 5.30pm at Victoria Gate Casino. All of the money raised through the event will be used to support individuals who are genuinely in need through Big Change, helping them to build independent lives away from the streets.
Since launching, Big Change Leeds has received a fantastic outpouring of support from the business community, including organisations from a range of sectors and areas of the city. The Big Change Big Quiz offers a great opportunity for businesses and employees to get involved in this new initiative and support Big Change, whilst enjoying an evening of socialising with colleagues and friends.
