Leeds Children’s Charity Christmas Present Appeal
Leed’s Children’s Charity has just launched their Christmas Present Appeal for 2020, which we all know has been an incredibly hard year for everyone.
Since its beginnings back in 1904, the charity has provided support and a respite holiday for over 60,000 disadvantaged and socially excluded children from our local region.
In 2017, the holiday centre moved from Silverdale in Lancashire to Lineham Farm in Leeds where it is now a state of the art youth respite centre offering youngsters the chance of a holiday break that they wouldn’t have otherwise.
Over the coming months we will be supporting the charity with various events and hopefully, post COVID-19, some great volunteering opportunities for our staff.
