Press Release: Leeds Festival Lost Property benefits asylum seekers and refugees
Money handed in at Leeds Festival and not claimed is set to benefit a second local charity working with asylum seekers and refugees.
The Lost Property team, part of the Festival Angels, were left with cash which was not claimed by its owners. This money is part of a donation to Meeting Point, a project based at Christ Church working with asylum seekers and refugees in Upper Armley, Leeds.
Nic Sheppard, one of the Lost Property managers, says, "Last year the Lost Property team managed to return over 500 items to their owners. Unclaimed items go to local charity shops or are recycled. For a few days each year the Leeds Festival campsite can look like a refugee centre and many festival goers struggle to cope without home comforts. It seemed entirely appropriate that this year any unclaimed cash would go towards helping those for which every day is a struggle.”
Emma Crossley, Manager of Meeting Point, says, "We are very grateful to Festival Angels for their support and the donation. We work hard to support some of the most marginalised families and individuals living in our community, who struggle with day-to- day living. This money will ensure we can continue to provide much-needed support at our drop-in, to those who need our help."
Festival Angels is set to run again at Leeds Festival over August Bank Holiday weekend with teams providing lost property, a prayer cafe and detached work offering support to all across the festival site.
