    Leeds Children’s Charity Christmas Appeal 2013 

    Champion a Child this Christmas

    As we enter the festive season, it is important to reflect on our achievements and also consider those less fortunate.

    This year, we are delighted to have taken 481 children to the Silverdale holiday centre and due to increasing demand we fully expect to send the same amount next year if not more. The need for places at the holiday centre is becoming greater all the time, highlighting the fact that more and more children are living in poverty and suffering from neglect.


    This is why today we launch our Christmas Appeal to ensure we can help the children that need vital respite from challenging circumstances. Our Champion a Child scheme is the best way you can help a child in need as it will cover the cost of their holiday to Silverdale – their travel costs, food and anything else they may need during their stay. Some children come to us without even the most basic essentials but with your pledge you can have a real and positive impact on a child’s life.

    Reflections & Thanks

    It has been an incredible year for fundraising here at Leeds Children’s Charity with some amazingly dedicated people undertaking all sorts of challenges and stunts to support us. This July a brilliant team of runners took part in the Leeds 10k and raised a record breaking £15,341.62! Other people did triathlons, held bake-offs and even masquerade balls to ensure we continue to support vulnerable children in Leeds. If you would like to raise money for us, from bathing in baked beans to jumping out of a plane please get in touch>

    Next year, we hope to reach even more people. With your help, we can make 2014 brighter for hundreds of families and children.

    How You Can Help

    There are many ways to donate, either with a one-off donation or as a monthly direct debit. As its Christmas, why not give the donation as a gift to a loved one? However you wish to help us, there are plenty of options to suit you>  

    A monthly donation is just £15 a month and regular support is what keeps this charity running and brightening children’s lives.

    This Christmas, make a difference to a child’s life and support our Christmas Appeal.

    Leeds Children’s Charity Move….Upstairs 

    The Leeds Children’s Charity as completed the arduous task of moving offices…even if it only was a few yards – upstairs!  Please note that our new address is Suite 12, 6-8 York Place, Leeds, LS1 2DS.  All of our other contact details have remained the same.

    We suffered downtime in our previous office as vandals managed to get in and burst some water pipes, meaning that we turned up on a Monday morning to be greeted by 3 feet of water.  Now we are on the 1st floor as opposed to the basement and have a much more pleasant working environment and also much better disabled and elderly access.

    If you would like to pop round to learn a bit more about the charity our door is always open for a cup of tea and a biscuit!

    Charity Boosted by Christmas Donations 

    The Leeds Children’s Charity would like to thank a couple of companies who were involved in donation and fundraising campaigns over the Christmas period.  First of all thanks to DWF who made a £500 donation to the charity and Shanco Construction, who have donated £600 to the charity in lieu of Christmas gifts that they would normally give.

    In addition we also like to thank  One Medicare @ The Light, who chose Leeds Children’s Charity as the charity their Christmas Giving Tree campaign would benefit from .  This is an annual campaign where the centre urges patients, employees and local residents to buy an extra present whilst they are out doing their Christmas shopping and donate it to the appeal by placing it under the centre’s Giving Tree.   Any gifts they receive under the tree at the Centre get donated to a charity of their choosing.

    Aviva, who have been supporting the charity throughout the year, also collected Christmas gifts for the children including toys, pyjamas, games, and a very much appreciated digital camera.

    Thanks to everyone who helped the charity in some way over the festive period, it is good to see that the Christmas spirit is still alive and kicking within Leeds.

    Leeds Children’s Charity – a holiday at ‘Silverdale’ in 1923 .. 

    Louise Murray, aged 7 years, went to Silverdale Holiday Centre  with her sister, Lilian, who was 13 years of age, in 1923 for a holiday by the sea.  The holiday was provided by the Leeds Children’s Charity and this is her story:

    “We were able to go to Silverdale as our dad, Edward Murray, had passed away aged 46 years from TB.  Our mum, Fanny, was 46 years.

    We went to Cookridge Street baths, then put on Silverdale clothes (Mums were waiting for our clothes), then marched to the station, arriving at Carnforth, horse and cart took the young ones, a long trek, 2 weeks of heaven!!!!!  Lots to eat, a bed of our own, grass, trees, sands – how I wished it would last forever.”

    A holiday at Silverdale

    Louise Murray is now 95 years of age and has never forgotten her trip to Silverdale.

    If you are an ex-Silverdaler and have a story to tell, please do contact the charity on info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or 01132454281.

    Leeds Children’s Charity will provide over 400 holiday places at Silverdale during 2011 for disadvantaged children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to get away from difficult situations or responsibilities beyond their years.
