The ILEAP Charity uses its resources to make our activities affordable for the majority. The high staff : member ratios make the sessions very expensive to run and if the full cost was charged the majority would not be able to afford to attend.
ILEAP is a registered charity (1089508) and we use our resources to make our sessions as safe, structured, vibrant, exciting, challenging and as fun as possible. We then try and make them affordable so that we get an eclectic mix of people who can enjoy activities together in a social, safe and positive way. There are a number of ways you can support the Charity. Some of which include:
Find YOUR Sparkle! and become an ILEAP Volunteer
If you would like to Volunteer for the ILEAP Charity you can either Volunteer at one of our many group sessions or you can organise fundraising events that will help us to continue to develop our important work. Either way, you will receive the relevant support you need and lots of opportunities to have fun, socialise and do something important and worthwhile.
Help to Fundraise?
We hold regular fundraising events that are great fun and play an important part in sustaining our services. Please try and come along to these and bring your family and friends. Alternatively, you can set up your own fundraising event and if you can’t think of one, why not hold a fundraising coffee morning or wine and nibbles evening, taking advantage of our MarketAbility social enterprise.
You can fundraise for the Charity by organising events, bring and buy sales, garden parties, dress down days, marathons, cycle rides etc. If you would like to do this please contact us and we can help to publicise your event and offer guidance and support. You can set up a fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/ileap and your supporters can donate online.
You can donate directly using the www.justgiving.com/ileap We appreciate donations no matter how small. If you are a UK taxpayer ILEAP will get an extra 20% through Gift Aid.
ILEAP’s “a very Social Enterprise”
We have developed a project called MarketAbility
Participants at these sessions design, make and package quality shabby chic items that make perfect gifts. Profits from the sale of these items go back into the Charity, helping to fund our wider work. We have a little shop at The Kenilworth Centre and you can order items via the website or the Facebook page, or you can visit our Market Stall at Kenilworth Thursday Market or Stratford Saturday Craft Market, where our members volunteer. We can personalise things for you and you are able to choose or supply your own fabrics to match your home colour scheme. www.smore.com/70d1z
