We are delighted to have been able to support this wonderful local charity during the difficult current climate with a donation of £500.
One of Leicestershire’s oldest charities, Leicester Children’s Holidays provide free respite breaks for children aged 8 to 11 who face difficult circumstances at home. The youngsters may live in a low-income family, have suffered a bereavement, be a child carer looking after a parent or sibling, or need a break for a host of other reasons.
The holidays have a huge impact on their young lives, borne out by their excited comments such as “I didn’t want to come home”. Happy memories are made and the children develop a fresh outlook on life. Their parents benefit too – they get a break which relieves pressure and strengthens family bonds.
Our donation will cover the cost for a child to go on one of the charity’s holidays next year.
