Airport Flying High With Official Charity Partnership
Phil Hopkins, Arts & Travel Editor
David Laws, CEO at Leeds Bradford Airport launches the partnership with Tyrell Robinson (Bradford City FC) and Eunan O’Kane (Leeds United FC).
Leeds Bradford Airport has announced its first ever official charity partnership.
The region’s largest airport has brought together the foundations of both Bradford City and Leeds United, announcing that they will jointly become the airport’s adopted charity.

The foundations will work to fundraise regularly in the terminal and jointly form a programme of events to engage both staff and customers using the airport.

Bradford City FC Community Foundation is a self-funded, registered charity with its main being to make a difference to people’s lives by promoting better health and well-being within its local community.

The Leeds United Foundation is a registered charity delivering high quality programmes to support people across the Leeds City Region, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

David Laws, Chief Executive of Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “Sport is a fantastic passion for people across Yorkshire. Both charities do tremendous work across the region in a number of communities and we feel this latest initiative is another way in which we can achieve our ultimate goal in creating an airport the people of Yorkshire feel proud of.

“Both charities are very worthwhile causes and the airport is the perfect place to reach millions of people.”
