    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

    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.

    If you would like to help many hundreds of children in dire need, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 01132454281.

    Fantastic Leeds 10k team supporting the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    An amazing group of volunteer runners/joggers/walkers joined forces on Sunday 8 July 2012 to take part in the Leeds 10k to raise funds for the work of the Leeds Children’s Charity.  Volunteers from Don Little Properties, DWF LLP, Eaves & Co, Swink Design, Aviva Leeds, Exquisite Handmade Cakes Limited, Charles Stanley, and many other wonderful individuals gave up their time and energy to support the charity, both on the day and during their many hours of training and practice before the event.

    The charity team were joined and supported by Jack Downham (who plays Noah Tate in Emmerdale).  Jack wanted to join the runners but was unable to do so because of his age.  However, Jack had taken the time to find out about the work of the charity and he was moved to write the following statement:  “I feel very honoured to be supporting the Leeds Children’s Charity. I am supporting the Leeds Children’s charity because of their great work to help children who are, for whatever reason, unable to have a holiday. These children don’t just want holidays, they need them because of everything piled on their shoulders. Some of the stories that I have read about the children who have benefited from the work of the charity are heart breaking. I am very pleased to support the charity and I hope my involvement will help raise awareness and assist the charity in the vital work it does.”

    Thank you to everyone for making this event so enjoyable and successful.  The money raised will be used to provide much needed respite for many disadvantaged children of Leeds, and we are extremely grateful for this fantastic support.  Nearly 450 children will enjoy a holiday at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre this summer where they are free to play, have fun, make friends, and be a child.

    If you would like to help the Leeds Children’s Charity, please contact by telephone – 01132454281, or email – info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk.  Thank you for all your help.
