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.
