Fantastic team work at Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre …

Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre was a hive of activity on Saturday with teams of people undertaking several tasks around the building together with a fund raising book sale to help the charity.

Michael D’Ambrosio from Halfords together with Oliver Jackson worked all day to maintain the many bicycles, go-carts and turbo-twists held at the holiday centre.  Halfords also very generously donated 4 new bikes for the children to use.  All the equipment is now ready for the many hundreds of children who will enjoy riding the bikes and go-carts during their stay at Silverdale.  


A group of 25 colleagues from Aviva worked all weekend to refurbish the Heselden Room and the Shoe Room, as well as planting 1000 daffodil bulbs in the grounds of the Holiday Centre, and donating lots of other resources.  The rooms have been transformed into bright, stimulating areas where children can have fun, use their imaginations to play, and entertain their peers.


Books galore were on offer to the many visitors to the Holiday Centre on Saturday.  Susan Campbell and her family ran the book fair with all proceeds in aid of the Leeds Children’s Charity. 

The trustees would like to thank everyone for all their input, help and support to the charity for which we are extremely grateful.
