Bedmaker strengthens links with Zarach

Harrison Spinks has strengthened its links with Leeds-based poverty charity Zarach.

After donating mattresses to the charity in 2022, it has now partnered with the charity to provide 20 custom-made mattresses a month to support children and families in poverty.

The aims to ‘give every head a bed’, delivering beds and basics to children via its central Leeds hub and in towns and cities across the country, with additional hubs in Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Calderdale, Liverpool, Stockport and Romford. Partnering with local schools, it is able to identify children living through poverty crisis, where parents are continually making the choice between spending money on food, using the cooker or the washing machine. For many families, beds are an expense which seem like a mountain climb.  

‘Our mission at Zarach is to end child bed poverty in England and give children the opportunity to engage in their education. Too many children are sleeping on cold, hard floors, sharing with multiple siblings and even in the bath. Sadly, we have heard it all. However, we believe that through our work, and together with Harrison Spinks and its generous donation of mattresses, we can continue to make a difference. Ensuring children have a warm, safe place to rest each night begins to level the playing field amongst their classmates, creating a place for their growing bodies to develop, a place for privacy, and a space to call their own,’ says Amy Green, Zarach funding and communications manager.

‘Zarach plays a significant role in supporting children and families’ lives in our local area, and we are delighted to be partnering with them again on this project to deliver 20 customised hand-made beds each month to those desperately in need. We hope that our partnership will deliver lasting and positive change to the lives of children and families throughout Leeds and the wider areas,’ says Nick Booth, Harrison Spinks md.
