    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.”

    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

    Tony Passmore is Managing Director of More Ability, part of the Passmore Group.

    Onesie’s raise money for the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    Many activities have been organised to raise money for the Leeds Children’s Charity, but I think this must be the first for the Onesie’s.

    Onesie's (2)During Christmas time, Emma Ward and her colleagues at Arla Foods organised a raffle and wore Onesie’s to raise money for the charity.  £424.38 was raised from this activity and this money will be match funded by the company.

    The trustees are enormously grateful to Emma and her colleagues for their generosity.  The money raised will be used to help finance short breaks/respite for 4 disadvantaged children who would not otherwise have an opportunity to leave difficult home situations.

    The charity will be providing 480 holiday places during 2013 and it would be fantastic if more supporters were to organise unusual and wacky ways in which to raise much-needed revenue to help children to have a break by the sea away from dysfunctional families or responsibilities beyond their years.

    Do you have a wonderful new idea that will involve your friends and colleagues and raise funds for the charity?  We would love to hear from you and to have the chance to share the fun with others.

    If you would like to help, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk, or telephone 0113 245 4281.

    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.

    If you would like to support the Leeds Children’s Charity, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.

    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.

    If you would like to help raise funds for the Leeds Children’s Charity, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk, or telephone 01132454281.

    Book royalties to aid Leeds Children’s Charity 

    Disadvantaged children of Leeds are to benefit from the very generous donation by Dr Jiannis K Pachos, Reader in Theoretical Physics, Royal Society URF.

    Dr Pachos has written a book entitled ‘Introduction to Topological Quantum Computation’ and all the royalties from the sale of this book will be paid to the Leeds Children’s Charity .

     Royalties of over £600 have  already been received by the charity which we are extremely grateful.  This money will be used to provide free residential short breaks/respite for underprivileged children who would not otherwise have an opportunity to leave difficult, and possibly dangerous, home situations.

    Nearly 500 children will enjoy a holiday at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre during 2013, and the money received will help to finance a short break for 4 disadvantaged young people.  For some, this will be the first time they will have travelled on a train, seen the sea, or played freely in the fresh air.

    If you would like to help disadvantaged children of Leeds aged 7 to 11 years, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.  We look forward to receiving your call.

    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.

    Sainsbury’s Local Brewery Wharf, Leeds, to support the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    The new Sainsbury’s Local Store at Brewery Wharf, Leeds, was officially opened by Grenville and Sandra Fletcher, Vice Chairman and Trustee of the Leeds Children’s Charity.

    As part of Sainsbury’s on-going Community Spirit Programme, bedding, towels, safety helmets and pads have been purchased for the charity for use at the Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale, near Morecambe.  The charity is preparing to provide nearly 500 disadvantaged children with a short break/respite during the 2013 holiday season and the very generous assistance of the staff at Sainsbury’s Brewery Wharf will be a tremendous help in ensuring that everything is ready for their arrival.

    Amy Stephenson, Sainsbury’s Store Manager, said that the staff at the new store were delighted to be able to support this worthwhile local charity and to help to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children of Leeds.

    The trustees are enormously grateful to Sainsbury’s for this amazing support and we hope to develop a mutually beneficial working relationship with Amy and her staff during 2013 for the benefit of the children and everyone at Sainsbury’s Local Brewery Wharf.

    Variety Children’s Charity award supports the Leeds Children’s Charity 

    An amazing award from the Variety Children’s Charity to purchase a Hurricane Swing to add to the outdoor play area at Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale, will benefit many hundreds of children who enjoy a holiday by the sea.

    The project is to replace the existing wooden equipment with modern, colourful, imaginative outdoor pieces.  Awards have been received from Wade’s Charity, Hedley Foundation, Beatrice Laing Foundation, Leeds Building Society Charitable Foundation, and the Variety Children’s Charity.  Fundraising activities have also been organised by the staff at the Leeds children’s’ Holiday Centre to raise more monies to complete the project.

    A total of £22,250 is required and the charity has raised £18,500 to date.  It is hoped that the equipment will be in place in time for the 2013 summer season.  The equipment that will make up the play area is a Hurricane Swing, Rota Web Climber, Dizzy, Activity Trail, and 20m Zip Wire.

    Some of the children who will use the play area live in high-rise flats or houses where it is unsafe for them to play outside, and the opportunity to run on grass, play in the fresh air, and enjoy the outdoor play equipment is a wonderful new experience.

    If you would like to help create this amazing play area, or support the Leeds Children’s Charity in any way, please contact 0113 245 4281, or info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk.
