Provide Community is delighted to announce that the annual Golf Day has raised an incredible £12,000 for child poverty charity, Zarach.

Committed to helping children and families who are living in poverty, Zarach operates in Leeds and beyond. The charity is active in schools and communities and receives referrals through a special network of schools and partner organisations.

Since the charity’s inception, its mission has been to provide Every Head a Bed nationally, helping families living in crisis rise up from surviving to thriving so children can Eat, Sleep and Learn.

When asked about the donation, Hubs and Project Co-ordination Jessica Sandy at Zarach said;
“We are thrilled to accept the phenomenal donation of £12,00 raised by Provide Community. This will buy 80 bed bundles for children living in poverty.
“A bed budle consistis of a brand-new bed with a high-spec mattress, new bedding, pyjamas, a hygiene kit, a Zed Ted teddy bear and a storybook.
“We thank each and every person who donated – rest assured you have made a difference to a child, and a family and helped Zarach in our quest to give Every Head a Bed.”

The total funds raised on the golf day amounted to £6,000, which was then matched by our Governor match-funding initiative, which increased the donation to £12,000.

Provide Community Governor and Chair of Ethnic Minorities Network Nisha Desai said; “As the Chair of the Ethnic Minority Network for the Provide Community, it is truly heart-warming to see such a large sum of money going towards the fantastic work Zarach continues to deliver every day.

“By supporting Zarach, we are living our values of care and compassion and contributing to improving the lives of these families.

“As a Community Interest Company, Provide Community is incredibly fortunate to be able to support charities such as Zarach and help them achieve their mission through our charitable funding initiatives.”
