Since 1898 Leicester Children’s Holidays have provided 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. Throughout the festive season Leicester Children’s Holidays will be offering gift wrapping for shoppers, in return for a donation to support their vital work providing life-changing experiences.

Formerly called Leicester Children’s Holiday Centre Mablethorpe, Leicester Children’s Holidays are proud to have provided more than 60,000 free holidays for young children in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland since 1898. Visit to the shop to learn more about their history over last 120+ years. You'll find Leicester Children’s Holidays located on the Upper Mall next to the Post Office (opposite Zara).
