    Leeds Building Society, White Rose Rotary and Travis Perkins complete cycle path 

    An amazing team of volunteers from Leeds Building Society, White Rose Rotary, and Travis Perkins have joined together to create a cycle path through the woods at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale.

    Nearly 500 underprivileged children will be travelling to the centre during 2013 to enjoy a week’s holiday by the sea.  The holiday centre offers them space to have fun, play, and be a child.  The spacious grounds of the holiday centre will be filled with laughter and chatter of children while they ride on bikes and go-carts, enjoy the new cycle path, playground, and take part in sports and games.

    Cycle path team - 03.02.13

    The cycle path will add another dimension to this holiday experience, and we are extremely grateful to these wonderful volunteers for making this happen.

    The team worked over a weekend and took the opportunity to enjoy the facilities of the holiday centre, whilst creating another facility to be enjoyed by children with little hope or expectation.

    If anyone would like to help the charity, or to stay at the holiday centre for a weekend and week when children are not in residence, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.

    Thank you to all the fantastic supporters of the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    2012 was another successful year for the Leeds Children’s’ Charity.  Most importantly, 434 disadvantaged children enjoyed a break by the sea at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale – children who would not otherwise have had the opportunity to have a break from difficult home situations.

    The trustees could not do their work without the wonderful support given to the charity by many amazing sponsors and benefactors.  These include Northern Rail who sponsor train tickets for the children and their escorts; Richardsons Solicitors who have raised money and also provided invaluable advice and support; Aviva Leeds who have taken the charity to their hearts and have organised a whole variety of fundraising activities, sponsored bicycle ride, runners in the Leeds 10k, cake bakes, and more; DWF LLP who have raised money through dress down days, raffles, book sales, marathon running, and collected much-needed resources; Leeds University students who have done an amazing job of organising activity weekends and weeks for the children, raised money through auctions, raffles, music nights, and a Christmas Fayre in the City; and many more extremely generous benefactors too numerous to mention – corporates of all sizes, groups and organisations, and remarkable individuals who donate money, time, and/or resources to help underprivileged children in Leeds.  2013 has already started with a bang.  Lowell Group have nominated the Leeds Children’s Charity as their Charity of the Year and have already organised a full programme of fundraising events.  Support such as this will enable the charity to provide 480 disadvantaged children with a much-needed holiday by the sea during the summer of 2013.We are enormously grateful to everyone for their ongoing support and I apologise that there is not space enough in this blog to name all our incredible benefactors.  However, sponsors and supporters are always given a mention on our website, blog, social media sites, or newsletter whenever the charity benefits from their munificence.  We feel that it is our duty to broadcast that there are extremely generous people who are supporting children in dire need.

    If you would like to help the Leeds Children’s Charity in any way, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk, or telephone 01132454281.  We would be delighted to hear from you.

    Happy New Year
