As we enter the festive season, it is important to reflect on our achievements and also consider those less fortunate.
This year, we are delighted to have taken 481 children to the Silverdale holiday centre and due to increasing demand we fully expect to send the same amount next year if not more. The need for places at the holiday centre is becoming greater all the time, highlighting the fact that more and more children are living in poverty and suffering from neglect.
This is why today we launch our Christmas Appeal to ensure we can help the children that need vital respite from challenging circumstances. Our Champion a Child scheme is the best way you can help a child in need as it will cover the cost of their holiday to Silverdale – their travel costs, food and anything else they may need during their stay. Some children come to us without even the most basic essentials but with your pledge you can have a real and positive impact on a child’s life.
Reflections & Thanks
It has been an incredible year for fundraising here at Leeds Children’s Charity with some amazingly dedicated people undertaking all sorts of challenges and stunts to support us. This July a brilliant team of runners took part in the Leeds 10k and raised a record breaking £15,341.62! Other people did triathlons, held bake-offs and even masquerade balls to ensure we continue to support vulnerable children in Leeds. If you would like to raise money for us, from bathing in baked beans to jumping out of a plane please get in touch>
Next year, we hope to reach even more people. With your help, we can make 2014 brighter for hundreds of families and children.
