In The Community

Our community matters

As an independent small business, Lester Campbell are committed to helping our local Leeds and Yorkshire communities to thrive. Our team have worked in Leeds and its surrounding towns for many years and, thanks to the amazing people, it’s a fantastic place for many to both live and work. We want to give back by supporting local charities who are focused on delivering positive changes and projects within our local communities.

Our charity of the year: Life Experience

In 2024, we will continue to support Life Experience for our fourth year running. Life Experience is a fantastic community interest company who are on a mission to change the course of young people’s lives throughout Yorkshire. Life Experience was founded by Phil Pearce and is ran entirely by volunteers delivering choices and consequences through their own lived experiences.

This charity creatively tackles anti-social behaviour, knife crime, bullying, substance abuse and much more by collaborating with schools, police, and key local groups. They inspire and engage their audiences through spoken word and acting workshops, small business start-up programmes, and by honestly sharing their personal lived experiences from darker times in their past to where they are now – making a difference!

Throughout 2024 we will donate £10 from every new instruction to Life Experience and host a number of fundraising initiatives for our clients, friends, family and partners to support too. Join us as we raise awareness of their amazing work in our local communities and help us to fund more valuable projects that can positively impact young people.
