Charity and Community Work

Traditional family values

A family-run business, Passmore Group has been an established part of the Leeds community for over 50 years. A company built on traditional family values, supporting our community, and charity's within it, has always been important to us.

A Sense of Community

Our strong sense of community is the reason that we take every opportunity to help others in, and around our area, who find themselves in less fortunate circumstances. We achieve this through a number of different methods from, fund raising, sponsorship, knowledge transfer, education & supporting organisations with similar charitable contributions.

Making a difference

We are extremely proud of all our efforts, both company and individually, across each and every not for profit organisations and charity. Below are a selection of our most recent contributions and accolades:

The William Merritt Disabled Living Centre

Passmore Group & More Ability have worked with the William Merritt Centre since 1998. During this time we have fund raised, sponsored and been on hand to help raise awareness, offer advice, educate and train end users and healthcare professionals alike on all aspects of available bathing solutions.

Below are a number of different contributions that we have made over the years from Managing Director, Tony Passmore, raising £3,000 following a 500km cycle across Burma to the most recent contribution whereby we offered expertise, knowledge and man power, refurbishing 3 key areas to the new and improved centre.

Leeds Children’s Charity

In August 2013 Steve Passmore recently took part in the Jane Tomlinson 10K run in aid of the Leeds Children’s Charity where he raised an incredible £1,465. The money raised will contribute to allowing the disadvantaged and socially excluded children of Leeds the release and respite of a holiday.

Children in Need

Flash back to September 2015 & 2016 where Steve Passmore took part in Howley Hall Golf Clubs annual charity event to raise money for Children in Need and a number of local charities.

Since first established in 2002 the yearly event has so far raised a total in excess of £260,000 excluding 2016’s contributions – no doubt Steve, an avid golfer in his spare time, will be taking part in the annual event in 2017.

JDRF

In March 2016 a member of the Passmore team arranged a children's Easter egg come treasure hunt & mini disco to raise money for JDRF, a charity focused on helping cure Type1 Diabetes.

Rachel's daughter was diagnosed as being Type1 Diabetic in late 2015 and, as such, the JDFR charity is one which has become close to all our hearts. The event raised in excess of £450 which was gratefully received by the pioneering not for profit organisation.

DIY SOS – The Big Build

In August of 2012 we were contacted by the hit BBC series ‘DIY SOS – The Big Build’ to supply manpower, equipment and materials for a West Yorkshire family looking to fully adapt their home, making it safe & accessible for a disabled resident. The bathroom adaptation work, which was undertaken by ourselves, formed part of a large scale home renovation project.
