    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.”

    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

    Challenge completed – 75-mile bike ride from Silverdale to Leeds raises £4,500 

    An amazing team of cyclists set off from Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre, Silverdale, early on Saturday 19 May 2012 to cycle 75 miles to Leeds in aid of the Leeds Children’s Charity.   The route took them over hills and dales, through wind and rain, until they finally sped along the Leeds-Liverpool canal towpath to their final destination where a champagne reception awaited this amazing group of individuals.

    Ready to go ..

    Colleagues from Aviva and Hendersons together with family and friends made up the cycling team together with the extremely important support network that kept the cyclists safe, fed, and motivated to complete the challenge. Hours of practice put in by the team members paid off handsomely and resulted in the wonderful sponsorship sum of £4,500 in aid of the work of the charity.  The Leeds Children’s Charity provides free residential short breaks/respite for disadvantaged children aged 7 to 11 years.  Over 400 children each year travel from Leeds to Silverdale by train to enjoy time and space for fun, play, friends, and the opportunity to be a child.  The trustees are enormously grateful to everyone who took part in this gruelling challenge that will help two groups of 14 underprivileged children to have a much-needed break by the sea away from dysfunctional families and/or responsibilities beyond their years.

    If you would like to help the work of the Leeds Children’s Charity in any way, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or 01132454281.
