New lawnmower delivered to Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre

The members of the Silverdale Committee have raised sufficient funds to purchase a new lawnmower from John Kaberry Limited, North Hykeham, Lincoln, to be used at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale, near Morecambe.  Our old mower has been lovingly maintained by Steven Metcalfe, our caretaker, in order to keep it going for as long as possible and it has given great service for many years.

We are extremely grateful to John Kaberry and his son, Jonathan, for personally delivering the lawnmower and for their interest in the charity and its service.

The Silverdale Committee was founded in the early 1900s to support the Leeds Children’s Charity and to raise funds to help maintain the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre and the hundreds of children who enjoy a free residential short break/respite.  The current committee members are constantly working hard to raise funds for projects undertaken at the holiday centre including refurbishing the swimming pool, purchase of washing machines, assistance with replacement of toilets and urinals, assistance with the tarmacing of the drive and forecourt, and many more.

If you would like to help the Leeds Children’s Charity or to know more about the work of the charity, please contact or telephone 01132454281.
