Liverpool to Leeds – sponsored 127 mile cycle ride along the canal for charity

Steven Dawson, Head of Costs Department, DWF LLP, has completed a 127 mile cycle from Liverpool to Leeds, along the canal to raise funds on behalf of the work of the Leeds Children’s Charity.   DWF LLP have nominated the Leeds Children’s Charity as their Charity of the Year for 2012 and this is just one of many fundraising activities that are being organised to help raise money and resources for the charity.

Approximately £485 has already been raised for the charity by this amazing challenge and if you would like to add to this total, the sponsorship site is  http://www.justgiving.com/SteveDawson.

We are extremely grateful to Steve for his support and encouragement to others to raise funds on our behalf.  The money will be used to provide free residential short breaks/respite for disadvantaged children of Leeds aged 7 to 11 year who would not otherwise have the opportunity to have fun, play, or be a child away from difficult home situations or responsibilities beyond their years.

Over 400 children will enjoy a holiday by the sea during the 2012 holiday season and we would like to thank Steve and all his sponsors for the help given to help make this possible.

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