The Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People has purchased a former Diocesan office in the city. The charity, which responds to the needs and aspirations of deaf, hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted people, has bought the 4,600 sq ft building on St Mary’s Street in Leeds.
The property will be used for social activities and the development of its services. The charity will now be sited close to the bus station and the new Victoria Gate shopping destination. The property was sold by Leeds based property consultancy Sanderson Weatherall, acting on behalf of the Diocese of Leeds. Martin Dodgson, president of the Society for Deaf and Blind People, said: "Our new premises, so close to the city centre yet set within extensive lawns and with easy access for both pedestrians and car users, provides a perfect setting and location for our future."
Tom Goode, office agent at Sanderson Weatherall, added: "We are delighted to have sold this property to the Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People. "The Diocese of Leeds is a long standing client of ours and we are pleased to have assisted them on another disposal."
