    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.

    Elizabeth Arden event proves a real hit with the Ladies 

    On Thursday 2nd May, Debenhams’ restaurant on Briggate, Leeds played host to a wonderful evening of pampering and laughter in aid of Leeds Children’s Charity. Tickets were much sought after and it was a full house that enjoyed a luxury makeup demonstration from the Elizabeth Arden team at Debenhams. Danielle Wilson and her colleagues Sue and Jane also provided some excellent makeup tips from colour selection to application.

    Our dedicated volunteers Karen Whitham and Charlotte Lumley were the lucky ladies who received a stylish Elizabeth Arden makeover and both looked fabulous – a real testament to the quality of these makeup products. Karen and Charlotte make up our fundraising events team at LCC and were both delighted with the results.

    The event was attended by representatives from our corporate sponsors Torque EU, DWF, Hendersons, NB Translate, Lowell Group and West Yorkshire Police alongside our trustees and friends. The event raised £280 from ticket sales and donations for the charity.

    Everyone in attendance was delighted to take home an exclusive goody bag and due to the events’ success and the Elizabeth Arden Ladies commitment to fundraising, it was agreed it will now become an annual event.

    Many thanks to all who came and we hope to see you all at next year’s event that promises to be even bigger and better!
