Over a period of over 25 years the Ledston Charity, named after the annual and very successful Summer Ball held in the grounds of Ledston Hall, was responsible for raising over £300,000 for Yorkshire Based Good causes, both large and small.
In 2012, two significant things happened, the launch of the organisation as a registered charity and a new name to go with it. It was felt that changing the name to the Yorkshire Charity reflected more accurately the purpose behind our existence, and so the Yorkshire Charity was born.
Our aim is to raise funds to benefit local charities and individuals.
We take great care in selecting who benefits from the money we raise and we try to make sure as many willing people benefit as possible. The Yorkshire Charity will continue to focus it’s support in four main areas, Health and Human Services, Education, Civic and Community Programmes and the Arts. No profit making organisation will be considered and every penny raised goes to local charities, charitable organisations and charity based individuals.
We host an annual grand theme ball each year and having fun and digging deep has always been at the forefront of what we do.
If you are interested in attending the ball for the first time, or returning for another visit, then we would love you to be a part of what really is a magnificent event. Take a look at the pictures from the previous events to give you a flavour of what the evening entails
