Moores Furniture Group has donated a kitchen to Leeds-based charity Getaway Girls, which featured in a Children In Need special episode of DIY SOS: The Big Build on November 16.
The kitchen is part of a large-scale transformation of the charity’s headquarters in Leeds.
Getaway Girls charity was set up in 1987 and became a registered charity in 1990. It aims to empower girls and young women to support each other to build confidence, resilience, raise aspirations, develop new skills in an environment that offers cooperation and support.
The charity has so far supported more than 134,500 young women to learn new skills.
Moores chief executive Mike Barrett commented: “Here at Moores, we are passionate about supporting our local communities and charities. The Getaway Girls project was a fantastic initiative to be a part of, and we are thrilled to support a charity that supports young women in the region.”
Getaway Girls director Flavia Docherty said: “A massive thank you to Moores for the kitchen donated as part of Getaway Girls DIY SOS/ Children in Need. Everyone who has seen the kitchen says it is absolutely beautiful. The girls and staff all love the kitchen and cannot wait to start cooking together. As part of our Healthy Holidays programme, we will be able to provide meals for the girls and the groups will enjoy learning to cook healthy, affordable meals. Thank you again for your generosity and support which will make a difference in the lives of girls and young women in Leeds.”
