Memory Lane receives Christmas Cards

Children at Yeadon Westfield Junior School have recently made Christmas cards to send to those who attend the Memory Lane Day Centre. The Centre is a specialist service that provides day care for elderly people who are living with different forms of Dementia. It is hoped that the Christmas cards will offer new and different forms of engagement for those who attend the Centre, as well as increasing their well-being. We also hope that the cards will help bridge the gap between the young and the elderly within the community.

Home Education PE Sessions

Community coaches Ben Walker and Nathan Newall have been running football sessions for local Home Educated children. Up to 15 children of a variety of ages attend weekly. The session helps to develop the football skills of these children, as well as helping to develop their social skills. The older children, aged up to thirteen, are able to help the younger children, aged as young as five, with this development of both football and social skills.

Extra Day of Soccer Camps               

Due to popular demand, we have organised an extra day of Soccer Camps in the Christmas holidays. This will take place on Tuesday 29th December, from 10am until 3pm, on the 3G pitch at Nethermoor Park. The cost of the day is only £10. Please book beforehand by emailing alison.leigh.gcf@gmail.com as there are limited spaces due to Covid-19 restrictions. There are still some spaces left on the other two days of Soccer Camps, which take place on December 21st and 22nd. Please book to avoid missing out! Please note that these two days have an earlier start time of 9am. All Covid-19 procedures will be in place, including temperature checks at the start of each day, as well as regular sanitizing intervals.

Toy Appeal Ends Tomorrow    

Tomorrow is the last day of our first Christmas Toy Appeal in partnership with Guiseley Morrisons. We have received so many donations so far, but you are still able to donate tomorrow. Our donation point is located in Guiseley Morrisons, in front of the self-service tills. Guiseley Community Foundation would like to thank Guiseley Morrisons Community Champion Sharron once again for providing the donation point in store. We ask that donations should be new and unwrapped, and suitable for children aged 0-16. All donations will be distributed via the Aireborough Children’s Centre and other professionals, helping to bring happiness to many children during the tough Christmas period.
