Spreading Kindness across Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe

Formed in 2020 in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, WF3 Kindness supports people living and working in Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe.

We've made it our mission to provide a network that is available to everyone so that nobody feels alone or unsupported and following our KIND values makes it possible.

The Story

WF3 Kindness was founded in March 2020 in an effort to support people living in the Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe area during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

 

News was coming from across Europe of the disruption to daily life caused by the Coronavirus outbreak and we were concerned about the impact that this would have on the elderly, the vulnerable and normal families within our community. 

We coordinated volunteers who provided practical and emotional support to local people, whether that was by collecting groceries from a supermarket, helping them with physical tasks around the home or simply by offering a listening ear to people that felt lonely and isolated.

In June 2020, Dan was invited to join Morley & District Lions Club, The local Lions club which covers most of South Leeds and North Kirklees. The Lions are the world's largest service club organisation with a network of 1.3 million men and women spanning 205 countries and geographic areas working together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world. Dan took us with him under the Lions umbrella which provided us with charity status.

Two years later and whilst the need is different to what it was during the challenges of a global pandemic, there is still a need.

The What, The Who, The Where

We believe that collaboration is key to improving local lives and communities and since our formation we have worked with lots of organisations and individuals. From sole traders and SME's to national and global businesses we work to bring people closer together and connected to improve the lives of those around us and the area as a whole.

Alongside the business community we work with other community groups and organisations on projects to benefit members of our community from young people to the elderly, through sport and other activities.

 

We have also worked closely with local MP's and Leeds City Council to bring a more cohesive relationship between government and all sections of our community.

And of course, we are are lucky to work with a group of such dedicated and kind group of volunteers, our Leadership team are always looking at what we can do next within the community to make sure we succeed in our vision to create a friendly, supportive and kind community for everyone.
