The Mayor's Charity

The Mayor, Cllr Lynda Eaton has chosen the Leicester Children’s Holidays as her Charity for the year and she will be working to raise money throughout the year for this charity by hosting several charity events. During the next 12 months she will be fundraising to support the work of the charity which is to give children a free holiday that, for numerous reasons, would otherwise not get one.

GREAT MEMORIES - The memories gained will stay with them for life.

PUSHING BOUNDARIES – Fun adventures, try exciting activities and doing things they wouldn't ordinarily have the chance to do.

NEW FRIENDS - Meeting new people and building friendships that will last forever.

BUILDING CONFIDENCE - A fun week of activities including zip lines, assault courses, swimming, map reading, abseiling, beach visits and plenty of ice cream.

There’s nothing quite like a holiday for getting away from it all and it’s no secret that holidays are great for relieving stress and creating happy memories. At Leicester Children’s Holidays (formerly Leicester Children’s Holiday Centre Mablethorpe), we work with a close-knit team of trustees and are proud to have provided over 60,000 free holidays for young children in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland since 1898.

With your support, we will continue to help families by providing free holidays to children across the county. During 2013-2018, 57% of children nominated were from Leicester and 43% were from Leicestershire and Rutland. Our breaks have a huge impact on the lives of every child we place; creating happy memories which help to develop a fresh outlook on life. As well as an unforgettable experience for the children, our holidays give parents a break too which can relieve pressure and strengthen family bonds.
