Good News and Donations 

The past month has seen Leeds Children’s Charity go from strength to strength after we secured some prominent corporate sponsors and received some extremely generous donations.

Here’s a brief snapshot of just some of the fantastic progress we have made in the past few weeks:

A special mention must go firstly to a very active patron of the charity, Eric Forster who has generously pledged the sum of £2000 to go towards the outdoor playing equipment. As a former chairman, Eric’s continued support has raised thousands of pounds and he has also encouraged others to donate through his connection with Leeds Rotary Club.

Simply Health, a healthcare organisation based in Leeds has pledged over £2000 which will largely go towards improving the picnic area at the centre.

Toy Trust have awarded Leeds Children’s Charity £5000 following our successful application for funding to provide respite to young carers and disadvantaged children who are supported by Signpost.

Scurrah Wainwright Trust have awarded Leeds Children’s Charity £2500 to go towards  young carers respite holiday.

Over £1000 has been delivered to the office by Catherine Noble who is organising bucket collections on behalf of the charity – keep an eye out for them in your local supermarket or shopping centre!

Whilst this money is vital to the charity we are also grateful to the many people who have donated their time, labour and resources to us. GSS Architecture has offered to brighten up the exterior of the holiday centre whilst Akzo Nobel and Dulux will be painting the boys dormitory. Simon Docherty and his staff at Premier Inn have very kindly pledged mattresses, tables, quilts and numerous other furniture and bedding for the center.

We are also looking forward to welcoming some more volunteers joining us at the centre in June and are ever grateful for people doing various challenges on our behalf.
