The LVE Charitable Foundation is the primary sponsor of L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community; an arrangement that has borne fruit in its first two years.
On Saturday, 22nd September, 2018, in Walthamstow Town Square, L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community was a key feature of the Stars over the Forest event and performed three routines featuring the Young L.E.A.D.E.R.S.,
The packed audience raised the roof with its rapturous applause, cheering and stamping, which must have registered somewhere on the Richter Scale.
The event was hosted by CBBC presenter, Inel Tomlinson who went down a storm.
In addition to L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community, the acts were:
- Luke November
- Corey P
- Lanya Matthews
- Laura Clavier

Despite their young age, the teamwork and camaraderie is phenomenal. Notice how their older colleagues in the front row cheer them on?

Is it any wonder that L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community is an award-winning organization. LVE Charitable Foundation is proud to be in the vanguard supporting the group.

Filled with self-confidence, discipline and well-honed skills, the senior group are inspirational to their younger colleagues.
LVE Charitable Foundation leads the funding of L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community, which is currently training up to 200 young people every single week. We hope that you are as proud of their achievements as we certainly are and we hope that you will join us in supporting them (below) through a donation or a regular subscription.
Here are a few candid images of the event:
How can you support L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community?
L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community is run by volunteers who give generously of their time not only in training the young artistes but in providing their outfits and, in the first instance, reaching out into the community to attract, particularly, children from areas where traditional, “formal” dance classes may be beyond the means of their family.
L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community provides the training and the training provides self-discipline, a sense of purpose, self-confidence and a sense of belonging which might otherwise be absent from their young lives. The absence of these things could lead to a sense of alienation. A lack of leadership could result in young people taking the wrong road so we firmly believe in the value of the work of L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community.
Please consider making a one-off or recurring donation, according to your means to fund the activities of L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community. Your entire donation received by us (after the deduction of the very small PayPal Charity Rate) will be passed on to L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community.
We have also included a simple subscription facility so that you can choose to support L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community via a simple, recurring subscription of £3, £5 or £10 per month. This represents anything from a cup of coffee to a modest meal in a cafe each month.
Your subscription will enable another child to be part of L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Community and that will help to change his/her life for the better.
