Every penny donated to Sunshine & Smiles goes directly towards the vital support we offer to our children, young people and families; whether it is Speech & Language sessions, fruit and milk for our baby group, transport for families, or paying our trained staff to support families or help our young adults into training and work.

We are so grateful for every donation we receive and it’s those moments of generosity that enable us to continue to support more people every day.

We would like to say a BIG thank you to some people who have recently shown their support.

Thank you to Moorlands School who took part in the 21 Challenge on Friday 17th May.

Throughout the day children completed sponsored challenges to raise awareness and donations for Sunshine and Smiles. They did 21 minutes of singing in Foxes and Reception, Year 1 dances for 21 minutes, Year 2 created 21 origami penguins, Year 3 saw 21 lengths, Year 4 did a bush tucker trial eating 21 items, Year 5 did a non-stop talking challenge, and Year 6 scavenged for 21 tiny items to fit inside a matchbox. As well as that, all form teachers agreed to have 21 wet sponges thrown at them!

What an amazing effort by the children and teachers at Moorlands, and it means so much for you to tailor your challenges around Chromosome 21. Thank you!

Thank you to Jack Gale, Jessica Jaryckyj, and Matthew Lingard from Walker Morris and Arslaan Butt for running the Leeds Half Marathon on Sunday 12th May in aid of Sunshine & Smiles. It’s events like this that really raise the profile of our charity and the donations raised make so much difference.

Thank you to Ailith Harley-Roberts who ran her own “Not Leeds Half Marathon” on Sunday 12th May. Ailith decided to run her own 13.1 miles from 0530am on Sunday morning to raise funds for Sunshine & Smiles. This meant she was able to join the supporters at Leeds Half and cheer our runners along the way.

Lots of teams took part throughout the day, even our Service Manager Ailith ended up getting involved!
As well as the rowing event, freshly baked cakes were being sold to increase donations and a raffle also took place. It was a fun packed day full of exercise, cake consuming and of course, smiles.
Thanks to everyone who took part to raise money for both charities, the total amount raised was £1,000 which will be split between the two, which is amazing! 🙂 Congratulations to Sagars who were the winning team!
