    Sainsbury’s Local Brewery Wharf, Leeds, to support the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    The new Sainsbury’s Local Store at Brewery Wharf, Leeds, was officially opened by Grenville and Sandra Fletcher, Vice Chairman and Trustee of the Leeds Children’s Charity.

    As part of Sainsbury’s on-going Community Spirit Programme, bedding, towels, safety helmets and pads have been purchased for the charity for use at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale, near Morecambe.  The charity is preparing to provide nearly 500 disadvantaged children with a short break/respite during the 2013 holiday season and the very generous assistance of the staff at Sainsbury’s Brewery Wharf will be a tremendous help in ensuring that everything is ready for their arrival.

    Amy Stephenson, Sainsbury’s Store Manager, said that the staff at the new store were delighted to be able to support this worthwhile local charity and to help to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children of Leeds.

    The trustees are enormously grateful to Sainsbury’s for this amazing support and we hope to develop a mutually beneficial working relationship with Amy and her staff during 2013 for the benefit of the children and everyone at Sainsbury’s Local Brewery Wharf.

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

    Richardsons & Co Solicitors LLP continue to support the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    Richardsons & Co Solicitors LLP  are very generously supporting the work of the Leeds Children’s Charity  by providing expertise, collection of much needed resources, and organising fundraising activities.

    Expertise and knowledge have been offered to the trustees to assist with the review and updating of the charity’s Constitution and Rules.  This exercise will be of benefit to current and future trustees in the management of the charity and will ensure that the governing document is fit for purpose for many years to come.

    Collections of Christmas Gifts and food for families in need will be taking place during November and December to help disadvantaged families and children to enjoy some festive cheer.   Items will also be taken to Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre to be enjoyed by many hundreds of children who will be provided with a short break during the 2013 holiday season.

    Fundraising activities being considered are a York to Leeds walk between the offices of Richardsons & Co Solicitors LLP, runners and joggers to join the charity’s 2013 Leeds 10k team, and much more.

    The trustees are extremely grateful to all the staff at Richardsons & Co Solicitors LLP for their help and support.
