Library supports RAG Community Fund

Published Wednesday 30 November 2016

The Library is pleased to support local Leeds charities with a donation of £1500.

Community Fund Coordinator for RAG, Rachel Bell, welcomed the donation. 

She said, "This donation will make a huge difference to what we can achieve this year in terms of numbers of charities we can help".

The Leeds RAG Community Fund distributes small grants to local Leeds charities who do not benefit from regular donations and who have an annual turnover of £100,000 or less.

The money donated by the Library is a proportion of fines paid by students for the late return of Library books that have been requested by another reader.

Librarian Stella Butler said, "I'm always impressed by the creativity and energy of students raising money for RAG, and the Library is glad to be able to contribute to the Community Fund charities."
