Book royalties to aid Leeds Children’s Charity

Disadvantaged children of Leeds are to benefit from the very generous donation by Dr Jiannis K Pachos, Reader in Theoretical Physics, Royal Society URF.

Dr Pachos has written a book entitled ‘Introduction to Topological Quantum Computation’ and all the royalties from the sale of this book will be paid to the Leeds Children’s Charity .

 Royalties of over £600 have  already been received by the charity which we are extremely grateful.  This money will be used to provide free residential short breaks/respite for underprivileged children who would not otherwise have an opportunity to leave difficult, and possibly dangerous, home situations.

Nearly 500 children will enjoy a holiday at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre during 2013, and the money received will help to finance a short break for 4 disadvantaged young people.  For some, this will be the first time they will have travelled on a train, seen the sea, or played freely in the fresh air.

If you would like to help disadvantaged children of Leeds aged 7 to 11 years, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.  We look forward to receiving your call.
