2019/2020 Charities

This year we will be raising funds for Leeds Mind


Leeds Mind

Leeds Mind promotes positive mental health and wellbeing, and provides help and support to those who need it.

The aim of Leeds Mind’s work is to help people build on their strengths, overcome obstacles, and become more in control of their lives. They work to support the people of Leeds in ‘recovering’ from periods of poor mental health and living independently with their mental health condition. They offer a wide range of different services such as counselling and mental health training.


Banbisanani is a partnership charity that uses sport to inspire young people from Mnyakanya High School and Leeds.

What started as a British Council/Youth Sport Trust ‘Dreams and Teams’ initiative has been developed into a unique collaboration that is known as the Bambisanani Partnership led by our Gryphons Abroad. The partnership has since gone on to gain international acclaim.
