First Group to finance holidays for disadvantaged children

Great news – an award of £2,700 has been made to the Leeds Children’s Charity from First ‘s Charities and Sponsorship Committee.    This money will be used to help finance a week’s holiday/respite by the sea at Silverdale Holiday Centre, near Morecambe, for 14 disadvantaged children from Leeds.

 Lisa Cartman-Kenny of First said:  “First’s donation will help this project by financing short breaks for children who would not otherwise have an opportunity to have release from often hostile environments, or to leave the City to see a different world outside of their very insular surroundings.”

The trustees of the Leeds Children’s Charity are extremely grateful to First’s Charities and Sponsorship Committee for all their help and support.

  The Leeds Children’s Charity was founded in 1904 to help the disadvantaged children and families of Leeds and nearly 58,000 children have benefited since that time.  Over 400 children will enjoy time and space at Silverdale Holiday Centre during 2011 to have fun, make friends, and to be a child.

If you would like more information about the work of the Leeds Children’s Charity, or if you can help in any way, please contact info@leedschildrenscharity.org.uk or telephone 0113 245 4281.
