WACCL Christmas Lunch 2022

Supporting young people in Wakefield

Our purpose

WACCL (Wakefield Christmas Charity Lunch) is held annually to raise valuable funds for local children’s charities. With the help of local business we raise an average of £30,000 a year for local causes,

Causes we support

Levi’s Star was established as a charity in August 2008. The charity is in memory of my gorgeous little boy Levi, who tragically lost his precious life to a brain tumour, just 6 weeks after the devastating diagnosis. Levi was only 6 1/2 years old. (See Levi’s story) Levi’s Star supports children with brain tumours and their families throughout Yorkshire.
Star is a small charity set up to offer support to children, young adults up to 25 years, and families across the Wakefield District, affected by the death of someone important to them – a parent, carer, friend, a sister, stepbrother, grandparent … addressing their needs in ways that are Compassionate, Comprehensive, and Accessible.
Theatre Royal Performance Academy and Performance Academy Kidz are weekend performance training programmes for young people in the Wakefield area.

Wakefield Children’s Charity

Wakefield’s Children’s Charity is is a charity with a difference. A charity that young people form the district own and run, it belongs to them. WACCL work closely with Wakefield Children's charity to raise money on their behalf.
