    Inline Helps Charity Brighten Lives 

    Verlie-sun-lotion

     

    Local company Inline Healthy and Beauty have kindly donated a supply of Aloha sun lotion, ensuring the children staying at Silverdale centre will be protected throughout the summer, meaning they can play outdoors without worry of burning in the sun.

    All the children the charity helps suffer from poverty, neglect, abuse, learning difficulties, illness or are young carers themselves. Leeds Children’s Charity gives these children the opportunity to have a break and enjoy a visit to the seaside, making friends and having fun along the way.

    The Silverdale Holiday Centre is a purpose built resort that allows the children to enjoy a holiday they may otherwise have struggled to experience without the charity’s help. The donation is not only a very kind gesture it’s an incredibly practical donation which will help the charity protect the children’s health and wellbeing.

    Inline Managing Director, Christian Cain said of the donation “The charity’s priority is the health and wellbeing of the children at the Silverdale holiday centre, and as a local charity we felt it was only right that we helped in any way possible. During the summer it can be very easy for children to get sunburnt playing outdoors, so naturally we thought sun lotion would be the ideal way to help the charity. The sun lotion is from the Aloha kids range and not only has a high SPF to screen the child’s skin from the sun’s rays, but it also has a blue dye ensuring that all exposed skin is covered!”

    Leeds Children’s Charity relies on donations from the public and business such as Inline, and without these donations it would be impossible for them to continue the work they do with local children.

    As the Chairman of the Board of Trustees Verlie McCann was delighted with the donation saying “The impact of the donation is incredible, Christian and Inline have given the charity enough sun lotion to last the entire summer season. The children’s wellbeing is of utmost importance and Inline’s donation means we can protect the children from the sun for the remainder of summer, letting them enjoy playing outdoors free from worry.”

    Now, let’s hope the rain disappears and there is plenty more sun for the children to enjoy at the Silverdale holiday centre!

    TalentatUni provides holidays for disadvantaged children 

    Talent At Uni! The live final of the biggest ever talent show to hit the City of Leeds took place on 23 February 2013 at the Stage@Leeds on the University of Leeds campus.   Singers, pianist, five-piece band, comedian, freestyle dance group, and a freestyle footballer all impressed the audience with their talent and the event was enjoyed by a packed house.  The finalists all performed really well, and it was an extremely difficult task for the judges to choose the overall winner.

    Josh Davies, a solo singer and acoustic guitarist representing the University of Leeds, was the winner of the show with his amazing performance.  The audience was captivated by his obvious talent, and he was very pleased to receive his prize.

    This amazing event was sponsored by Hendersons Insurance Brokers which was a massive boost to the student organisers, Nic, David and Will and they were delighted with this support.  Swink Design, Smart PR and MBIM Internet Marketing, and Doo Marketing were involved from the start, helping the students as part of their Performance Management project.  Other sponsors were Elliot Charles Group, O&H, and Allsop.

    Over £1,350 was raised on behalf of the Leeds Children’s Charity from this event.  The money will be used to provide much-needed respite for 8 disadvantaged children aged 7 to 11 years who would not otherwise have the opportunity to have a break from difficult home situations.  On behalf of the organisers, Nic said, “we are glad all the money has gone to such a worthwhile cause.”

    Cycles ready for action thanks to Cycle Service Leeds 

    Bikes, go-carts, and green machines are the absolute favourite for hundreds of children who enjoy a holiday at the Leeds Children Holiday Centre, Silverdale, each year.  A ride around open spaces and wooded cycle path is a must when you are 10 years old and do not have the opportunity to ride a bicycle at home.

    CIMG5399

    Bikes of various sizes and colours have been collected by the charity, with many of them being donated by families where children have outgrown them and moved onto other things.  For those children who are unable to ride a bike, they can still join in the fun on tricycles.

    It goes without saying that we must ensure that every child is safe, and we are extremely grateful to have the very generous help of Mick D’Ambrosio, Cycle Service Leeds, to maintain our collection of bikes to a high standard.  Mick has just given us the green light after inspecting and repairing the bikes for another year and we are now ready for action.

    If you would like to donate a bike, sponsor a child, or help in any way, please do contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.

    Support Tony’s bike ride to help children of Leeds 

    I have just returned from a 500k cycle ride through the heat, humidity and mosquito infested jungle terrain of Vietnam and through into Cambodia to raise funds for Leeds Children’s Charity.

    It was difficult cycling in 35 degrees each day and especially humid in Vietnam but much drier in Cambodia. The local children were always pleased to see westerners cycling past – all shouted hello as we passed, and high fives; they were especially interested in tall people like me!  The children were always very happy despite having little in the way of possessions – just had the basics of clothing, food, water and shelter.     To see photos of the trip, please go to http://www.tonysbikeride.com/

    Almost 2 years ago I cycled 500k across the Zambian bush to raise money to build schools for the local kids it felt so good to be able to make a difference thanks to the generosity of friends and colleagues that I felt I should do something similar, but this time for the under privileged kids of Leeds, my home city.  I am supporting the Leeds Children’s Charity who take local under privileged kids away on a week’s holiday to Silverdale near Morcambe – all the more poignant as   this is where my own grandma used to go when she was a child almost 100 years ago.

    I’ve already raised over £1,500 and it would be great to get this total to £2,500 to support the vital work of the Leeds Children’s Charity.     Can you please please help this local and very worthy cause.

    To support Tony, please  go to http://www.justgiving.com/Tony-Passmore1 to help raise funds for disadvantaged children of Leeds.

    To donate please click here ,   it only takes 60 seconds through Just Giving

    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.

    Catch me if you can

    Catch me if you can

    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

    Lisa Worsnop School of Dance entertains to help children of Leeds 

    A very special thanks is owed to the pupils of the Lisa Worsnop School of Dance for their amazing dancing and singing talent and skills presented to friends and family in order to raise funds for the work of the Leeds Children’s Charity.  The show, ‘Curtain Call’ was a pleasure to watch from start to finish.  Pupils from 4 to 40 took part in the show and they were all bright, enthusiastic, and entertaining stars of the night.

    SILVER KIDS 4The charity was chosen to be the recipient of money raised from three shows that took place on 7 and 8 December 2012 for which we are enormously grateful.

    Lisa Holmes, the dance teacher, said that it was a pleasure to raise money for such a worthy cause.  Nearly £300 was raised from a raffle, loose change was collected in buckets as the audiences left the building, and a donation is to be made to the charity from ticket sales and revenue raised from the sale of DVDs of the show.  All the money donated will be used to provide free residential short breaks/respite for disadvantaged and socially excluded children of Leeds aged 7 to 11 years.

    The charity will provide nearly 500 holiday places during 2013, and the money received from this fundraising event will help the trustees to achieve their target.

    Spirit of Christmas Fayre raises money to help children of Leeds 

    A team of BA (Hons) Events Management students at Leeds Metropolitan University organised the amazing Spirit of Christmas Fayre to raise funds for the Leeds Children’s Charity last weekend.  The Cinnamon Team, consisting of Nicola Rose, Antje Strietholt, James Ingleby, Molly Ridley, Alex Robson, and Josh Atherton, are all BA (Hons) Events Management students.  The event was organised as part of the students’ Professional Events Solutions module task in order to raise the profile of the charity and to generate revenue.

    P1040207The fayre was opened by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Cllr Ann Castle, who is the President of the Leeds Children’s Charity during her term of office.

    There were lots of stalls offering a variety of Christmas goods for all ages, a tombola, and a raffle with prizes donated by many generous sponsors including Blue Logic Computer Services Limited, Clark Business Recovery, DWF LLP, Aviva, and more.

    The event raised over £400, and this money will be used to provide a short break/respite by the sea for two disadvantaged children.

    The trustees of the Leeds Children’s Charity were delighted to work with the students to ensure that the event was a success.  Nicola McCullough, tutor at the university, said that she had been really impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment shown by the students, and their obvious enjoyment at working for the charity and its very worthwhile purpose.

    British Gas team up to brighten children’s lives 

    An amazing team of British Gas employees have helped to brighten many hundreds of children’s lives by painting the main corridor of the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre at Silverdale, near Morecambe.

    Under the Community Support programme supported by British Gas, a team of 16 enthusiastic workers transformed an area within the holiday centre to bring the ‘WOW’ factor to a much-needed short break/respite for disadvantaged children aged 7 to 11 years.

    Nearly 500 underprivileged children each year will be delighted with the bright, colourful entrance that will greet them as they enter the building, and this will make their holiday start with a swing.

     

    The trustees of the Leeds Children’s Charity are enormously grateful to this fantastic team that was led by Emma Wells, Project Delivery Manager, who said that their plan was to make a difference for children who will enjoy time and space at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre.

    The charity also benefited from support from G4S who have donated £500 for the work of the charity.

     

    We cannot thank British Gas enough for this wonderful support, and we know that all our small visitors over the years will enjoy looking at the bright, colourful decoration.

    Quingle raises money for Leeds Children’s Charity 

    A fantastic fundraising event was enjoyed by many at the Metropole Hotel yesterday evening thanks to the generosity of the team at Eaves & Co.  Paul Eaves and his team were host to clients, colleagues, and trustees of the Leeds Children’s Charity at their annual Quingle.  This event is organised to raise money for charity and the Leeds Children’s Charity were the lucky recipients of the funds raised at this year’s very enjoyable event.

    The money raised will be used to provide a free, residential short break/respite for disadvantaged children of Leeds aged 7 to 11 years.  This year, 434 children enjoyed a holiday by the sea, and the charity are proposing to provide 480 holiday places during 2013 due to the overwhelming demand from vulnerable families.

    Eaves & Co have been a tremendous support to the charity.  Their intrepid team of runners in the Leeds 10k raised over £600 to help children of Leeds bringing the total raised this year by Paul and his team to nearly £900.

    The trustees are extremely grateful to Eaves & Co for their amazing support through fun and friendship.
