New Leeds business club opened by the Mayor
A new not-for-profit business club – Trinity Club Leeds – has been opened by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Thomas Murray.
The club, in Boar Lane, occupies premises owned by Holy Trinity Church next door and its Rector, Reverend Tony Bundock, will be club President.
The club has capacity for approximately 100 members. Two small meetings rooms will be available and a larger room accommodating up to 30, to be called The Jaguar Room, which is sponsored by H A Fox Jaguar, Leeds.
The adjacent church building can be hired for conferences. Nurture Cafe which is situated beneath the new Club will be available for the purchase of refreshments and light lunches.
Nurture is a social enterprise initiative started at St George’s Crypt. Three of the four cafe employees are volunteers and are former clients of the homeless charity, St George’s Crypt.
Club members will enjoy discounts at local restaurants and hotels. Membership costs from £25/month and group discounts are available.
Club founder Canon Keith Madeley, MBE, said: “The club offers a city centre meeting and networking place for Leeds business people. We are delighted by the support we have already received from businesses including Land Securities, H A Fox Jaguar and Yorkshire Bank.”
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu commented: “I welcome the opening of Trinity Club Leeds and applaud the support that the business community is giving to the work of local churches and charities.
“This active partnership between church and business in a local community is a great example that I hope others will follow.”
