A BID to bring some of Leeds’ empty homes back into use is un­der­way.

The Leeds Empty Homes project, spear­headed by the Leeds Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion, is start­ing with a prop­erty in South Leeds and wants to raise £45,000 for the ren­o­va­tion work.

The Green­house de­vel­op­ment in Bee­ston is host­ing an Empty Homes event on May 16 led by Chan­nel 4 pre­sen­ter Ge­orge Clarke. Or­gan­is­ers are call­ing for those who can share ex­per­tise, of­fer ad­vice, skills, prod­ucts, ser­vices or in­vest­ment to go along.

The LCF has al­ready raised £10,000 to kick start the first project. You can reg­is­ter for the event at www.eventbrite.co.uk/ event/2875088467?ref=ebtn or visit www.leed­scf.org.uk.
