MAKING A DIFFERENCE - Our support for local charities & Birchfield Harriers

Find out how LDC are supporting the local community with work and support for:

Birchfield Harriers' Junior Development Programme

“For the fifth year, we are delighted to have LDC on board as the sponsor of our Junior Development Programme. This continued support for our young athletes is a vital factor in their development. This year 16 athletes received funding, which is more than ever before. They are already smashing personal bests and winning competitions, with an eye on the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.”

Andy Paul, Chairman

LDC Charity Quiz 

LDC’s annual charity quiz is always a night to remember – and this year’s event was no exception as it saw us hit the £1million mark for money raised for good causes since 2005.

Our 11th annual quiz took place on 12th October 2016 and saw 169 teams compete to be crowned 2016 champion. They gathered at venues near our offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Aberdeen, Nottingham and Reading, with Cardiff hosting an event for the first time since the office opened.

After an evening of fierce competition, the winner emerged in Birmingham, as Orbis Partners claimed bragging rights for the next 12 months. GCA Altium in Manchester took second place, while it was back to Birmingham for third spot, which was taken by BDO.

More than £150,000 was raised on the night, thanks to generous team donations and raffle and auction prizes. This helped us pass the landmark million-pound mark, with £1,000,565 having now been raised since we started the quiz 11 years ago.

All funds gathered on the night will be distributed to our local LDC charity partners - Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Camp Mohawk, Children In Need, Francis House, London Air Ambulance, Maggie’s (Yorkshire), Special Nursery and When You Wish Upon A Star.

We’d like to thank everyone who over the years has helped us raise an outstanding amount for such deserving causes. All eyes are already on next year’s event, when we’ll be looking to raise even more money to fund the great work that these organisations do.
