This year’s Crypt Factor, which is an annual singing competition that brings together leading companies from the region’s property industry to raise money for two great charities, was the biggest ever!
This year’s event broke every record in its nine year history and saw 10 budding singers and groups swap their day jobs in property for a night on the stage, and perform in front of a huge audience of approximately 700 people at Elland Road.
In total, the event raised more than £64,000 for two charities- LionHeart and St George’s Crypt and it’s a great delight that Morgans is a headline sponsor and organiser alongside Bond Dickinson, Bruntwood and Town Centre Securities Plc.
LionHeart offers all types of help and support to the property industry’s RICS members and their families who face problems in their lives that are often completely unexpected.
St George’s Crypt is a fantastic local charity based within the thriving church of St George’s in Leeds and has been at the frontline of support for homeless, disadvantaged and vulnerable people in Leeds and its surrounding areas since 1930.
The charity has previously spent the money we raise on all types of initiatives including its hugely successful ‘Growing Rooms’ programme, which houses and supports people as they break alcohol and drug related addictions. The money has also gone towards helping people to improve their self-confidence, make positive decisions and ultimately move back into society and gain employment.
St George’s Crypt costs £1.5-million to run each year and relies heavily on donations to operate and offer vital services that benefit about 200 people every day. You can find out more about the great work of this longstanding local charity by visiting www.stgeorgescrypt.org.uk
