Can you spare ‘Just One Day’ to support the Lord Mayor’s charity appeal?

Just One Day is an annual one day event where those who work, live, play, learn, eat, drink or shop in Leeds can show their pride in our city by supporting fundraising for the Lord Mayor’s chosen charity Leeds Hospitals Charity.

This year’s date for Just One Day is 20th May 2022 – Whether you decide to host a virtual quiz, take on a fitness challenge or throw a virtual gig for friends and family, we can’t thank you enough for your support. However you choose to get involved, by raising funds through Just One Day for the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal, you will help Leeds Hospitals Charity to fund specialist equipment and life-saving research, health and wellbeing initiatives, education opportunities for NHS staff, improvements to the hospital environment and provide specialist staff. Thank you so much!

Returning from a virtual hiatus, the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Asghar Khan is once again encouraging Leeds to come together for ‘Just One Day’ to raise vital funds for his chosen charity this year, Leeds Hospitals Charity. There are no rules to how people can raise money for ‘Just One Day’, whether it is deciding to wear fancy dress to work or school, organising a sponsored event, face painting, or even holding a best joke or spelling competition, nothing is off limits.

Donations to Leeds Hospitals Charity help fund initiatives that make a difference and help staff to provide the best possible care and support to patients and their loved ones. Donations can help to fund:

  • Specialist equipment and life-saving research
  • Health and wellbeing initiatives
  • Educational opportunities for NHS staff
  • Improvements to the hospital environment
  • Specialist staff.

The more fun the better, and if you let us know what you are planning, there is also a chance that the Lord Mayor may pay a special visit to your business, group, organisation or school on the day to say a big thank you! Don’t forget to share your fundraising stories and activities on social media by tagging @LordMayorLeeds and @LDSHospCharity on Twitter #JustOneDayLeeds.

The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Asghar Khan said:

”‘Just One Day’ is a fantastic opportunity for friends, families and colleagues to come together and have some fun whilst also raising money for a great cause. Every penny raised will enable my chosen charity Leeds Hospitals Charity, to continue the vital work they do, day in, day out helping hospitals across Leeds deliver exceptional care for patients.

“Whether you decide to organise a event, make a donation or simply help to spread the word about the important work of Leeds Hospitals Charity, I can’t thank you enough for your support.”
