The Parklane Foundation Makeover Challenge is Back!

Exciting News! The Parklane Foundation Makeover Challenge is Back!



We are thrilled to announce that the Parklane Foundation Makeover Challenge has returned, bringing vibrant new life to Involve Leeds! Our dedicated Hive Maintenance team has been working tirelessly to rejuvenate this vital community centre with fresh paint, stylish decor, and essential repairs, transforming it into an inviting space for all.



Located in the heart of Hunslet, Involve Leeds has undergone a significant transformation since July 2023. Previously an alternative provision for at-risk youth, it now serves as a bustling community hub offering a wide range of programs and activities. In an area with limited spaces for community groups, Involve Leeds is making a huge difference by providing services such as a breakfast club, soup lunches, cake and cuppa sessions, after-school activities, youth groups, digital support, mental health peer support, art projects, and much more.



From Monday to Friday, our team was all hands on deck, pouring their hearts into every task. Whether it was painting, cleaning, or building, everyone contributed to making this project a success. And of course, no hard work goes unrewarded – regular breaks with tea and cake kept our spirits high and energy levels up!



This has been our largest makeover project to date, made possible by the incredible support from Dulux. Their generous donation of paint and manpower has been instrumental in bringing our vision to life. We are immensely grateful for their contribution, which has been a cornerstone of this transformation. Also Verco who kindly donated to the makeover challenge.



To celebrate this remarkable achievement, we hosted a grand reopening on May 18th from 10 AM to 12 PM. It was a joyous occasion where we welcomed guests to witness the stunning makeover and the tremendous impact it will have on the community. The transformation was met with awe and appreciation, marking a new chapter for Involve Leeds and the Hunslet community.



Join us in celebrating this milestone and stay tuned for more exciting updates from the Parklane Foundation Makeover Challenge. Together, we are building a brighter, more connected community!
