    200th anniversary celebration at Silverdale Holiday Centre .. 

    The Leeds Children’s Charity will be joining the 200th anniversary celebrations of Silverdale during the weekend 1st and 2nd October 2011.  The charity was founded in 1904 and its history is linked to Silverdale village since over 58,000 disadvantaged children have benefited from a holiday in the Arnside and Silverdale area since that time. 

    The charity wholly owns and maintains a purpose-built property at Silverdale where over 350 children each year enjoy a holiday by the sea, and the residents of Silverdale have taken the children to their hearts.  During the Open Weekend, there will be an exhibition of photographs showing the work of the charity over its 107 years’ existence.  The oldest photograph being taken on the first day of the opening of the holiday centre in 1904. 

    Silverdale 1904

    The Centre will be open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm on each day of the weekend, 1st and 2nd October 2011 and everyone is welcome.  Refreshments and light lunches will be available together with a sale of local produce in aid of the Leeds Children’s Charity.

     
    If you would like more information about this event, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.

    Jimi Heselden remembered at Silverdale Holiday Centre 

    Jimi Heselden will be sorely missed by everyone in Leeds who benefited from his amazing generosity and philanthropy.  The Leeds Children’s Charity will be no exception.  Jimi enjoyed a holiday at Silverdale Holiday Centre, the purpose-built property owned by the charity, as a boy with his brothers and never forgot the experience.

    Jimi has done a great deal for the charity over many years – raising awareness, generous donations, inspiring others to support this unique service to the children of Leeds, and much more.
     
    In gratitude for Jimi’s continued support, the Leeds Children’s Charity will remember him with a named room at Silverdale Holiday Centre.  The Heselden Room is used by all the children who enjoy a holiday there and he will always be remembered as an ex-Silverdaler and generous supporter of the charity.

    Another successful year for the Leeds Children’s Charity .. 

    387 children have enjoyed a week at Silverdale, 39 had a fantastic activity weekend, 23 young carers had a break from responsibilities beyond their years, 53 young children from Chernobyl relaxed during their holiday by the sea, 11 volunteers from 3 different countries offered their help to add another dimension to the holiday, and 10 dedicated staff worked extremely hard in order to provide a holiday of a lifetime for every child at Silverdale during the 2011 holiday season.

    Many thanks to everyone who made it possible for so many children to have a short break/respite by the sea. 

    The trustees would like to provide even more holiday places for disadvantaged children during 2012 and this can be achieved with your help.

    If you would like to support the Leeds Children’s Charity, or help in any way, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.
