JTL is proud to announce the donation of £5,000 to the top three community projects chosen by its workforce.

The winning organisations include Leeds United Girls Academy U14s, Bottesford Belles U9 Football Team, and Dance and Cheer-a-cality (DCA).

JTL employees nominated and voted on the winning projects, reflecting the company’s commitment to supporting community initiatives, particularly those related to younger adults.

Bottesford Belles U9sReceiving 28% of JTL’s staff votes, Leeds United Girls Academy U14s were ranked first of seven projects nominated. The talented team of young women at Leeds United include aspiring potential apprentices and professional footballers. With JTL’s donation, expenditures around equipment, travel and other essentials, which are currently self-funded, will be eased.

Bottesford Belles U9 Football Team, a Lincolnshire-based club which focuses on breaking down barriers for girls’ access to football, achieved second place with 23% of JTL’s votes.

Finally, Dance and Cheer-a-cality (DCA) received 20% of the votes and a donation that will go towards helping to equip over 200 young people in Hampshire with valuable life skills through sport, dance and cheerleading.

JTL will be following up with each organisation later in the year to see how the funding has contributed towards these projects.
