    Staff and supporters of Leeds Children’s Charity have ensured the children holidaying at its Silverdale residential centre on the Lancashire coast will have a truly memorable Easter – having collected hundreds of Easter eggs for a hunt that is sure to put a smile on everyone’s faces.

    The charity, which was founded in 1904, takes groups of disadvantaged and socially excluded children between the ages of seven and 11 on holiday – something that many of them would otherwise never have the chance to enjoy.

    Verlie McCann, chairman and project manager of Leeds Children’s Charity, said: “Every year we give hundreds of youngsters from Leeds a holiday experience that they hopefully will never forget, and whenever trips coincide with a major holiday or calendar event we aim to do something memorable to mark it”


    This year thanks to the support of Leeds law-firm, DWF, which donated over 100 Easter eggs, and a host of other businesses and individuals, Leeds Children’s Charity is laying on its biggest Easter egg hunt ever.

    “I’ve lost count of the number of eggs I’ve ferried across to Silverdale over the last couple of weeks, but I’m certain it means children on holiday at the centre will be finding them for months’ to come,” added Verlie.
