Small charity thinks big with visitor centre plans


The transformation of charity Leicester Children’s Holidays has continued apace during the city’s lockdown, with trustees determined to see ambitious plans through. Covid-19 brought a temporary


halt to its work directly helping disadvantaged children enjoy a holiday. Most of the 85 youngsters, aged


eight to 11, lined up to visit an outdoor centre in Norfolk will go in 2021 instead. However, behind the scenes, the charity trustees have been working hard on its revamp and modernisation, including work turning its Highcross base into a visitor centre. Chairman Parvez Bhatty - who


joined the charity in 2017 - has applied business principles to how the charity is run, while encouraging a change in approach and accountability. “The charity’s ethos is to help


vulnerable children enjoy a holiday but to pay for the holidays, it needs cash and calls for a more commercial focus,” said Parvez. “Our Vison 2023 document


outlines plans to bring in more corporate supporters to sponsor children and includes a major project turning our Highcross base into a visitor centre.


“We are updating our online


presence with new branding, a new website and enhancing our social media presence to showcase the work we do for vulnerable children.”

Give gift of water this Christmas


A Derbyshire-based disaster response charity is calling for donations this Christmas to ensure much-needed water filters reach international disaster zones. Aquabox provides safe


drinking water and humanitarian aid to crisis zones and refugee camps around the world. Its volunteers assemble robust hand-pumped water filters and send them to disaster zones and conflict zones all over the world. One Aquabox family filter


costs just £25 to manufacture, yet it can produce up to half a million litres of clean, safe water. For each donation provided


with an email address, the organisation will send the donor a certificate, which can be printed out and even used as a Christmas card.
