Leeds Civic Trust are proud to reveal our colourful community of benches!
15 hand-painted benches can be found all over our city, from Guiseley to Beeston, Horsforth to Gipton. Each is unique and has been funded by Leeds Civic Trust to commemorate the incredible way each community has come together during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Leeds Civic Trust is a charity that works with its members and community partners to help make Leeds a great place to live, work and play. To find out more about the work we do and about the community groups and artists involved head to our website: leedscivictrust.org.uk or @leedscivictrust
