Supporting our community
The team at At Masonry are proud to support the communities we operate in. We work with a range of charities and other partners. Here is a selection of some of our current and recent community projects:
At Masonry has created an opportunity for the winner of Leeds Learning Disability Week’s photography competition to contribute to our new website.
Daniel Lee’s winning entries in the outdoors and nature category, were spotted by our marketing team. They were so impressed they arranged for him to visit our sites at Crigglestone, Horbury and a quarry in Holmfirth. The images he took will be used to help develop a photographic library for future use by the company.
John Burley from Leeds and York Partnership NHS Trust said “This really was a fantastic outcome from this year’s Leeds Learning Disability Week photography competition. The quality of entries is very high but for Daniel to be recognised in this way is brilliant.”
He added: “Massive thanks to the wonderful people at At Masonry for their hospitality and such a fabulous day!”
Carl Stewart, Production Manager of At Masonry also commented: “It was a pleasure to work with Daniel; he has an exceptional eye for photography, our pictures are amazing. Autism is something that is close to our hearts and we have enjoyed supporting the Leeds Autism Service ”

In Spring 2015, a team from At Masonry completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk, raising £1046 for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal. During the challenge, the team were walking for a gruelling 12 hours and initially faced severe weather. The weather improved as the challenge drew to a close and despite varying levels of fitness, a collective decision was made to stick together in order to support all participants. However, at the end of the event, the best conditioned team member, Tom, ran ahead to collect the car and order drinks so the rest could collapse at the finish. The Three Peaks challenge not only succeeded in raising money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal but was a tremendously valuable team building exercise.
