Search Laboratory chooses Leeds Cares as charity partner

Local digital marketing firm have chosen to support Leeds Cares for two years

Leeds based company Search Laboratory has recently confirmed its new ‘charity of the year’ as Leeds Cares. 

The fundraising efforts of the 150- strong team will be taking place throughout the year with various sporting events, bake sales and in-house challenges. The agency will be also offering pro-bono digital support to Leeds Cares to help raise their profile across the digital sphere.

Fundraising will be donated to the neonatal units at both Leeds General Infirmary and St. James’ Hospital. Leeds Cares was nominated by employee, Scott Hamilton who experienced first-hand the amazing work of the charity when his own son Theo was born prematurely just before Christmas.

After raising an impressive £12,600 for their previous charity Guide Dogs, the Search Laboratory team hope to surpass last year’s total and challenge themselves to more testing physical challenges throughout the new two-year partnership.

Amandeep Raan, Charity Leader at Search Laboratory, commented: “As a company, we are proud to support local charities which are close to the team’s heart and we see a real effort made by everyone consistently throughout the 18-month partnerships to raise funds and awareness. We raised an incredible £12.6k for Guide Dogs and we are looking forward to the challenge of beating the total this year for Leeds Cares.”
