LITTLE Leo Moon had a ball when he visited Mirfield Childrens Centre

LITTLE Leo Moon had a ball when he visited Mirfield Children’s Centre – all in memory of his grandad.
Twoyearold Leo was in his element with the new play equipment and toys bought to remember his grandad Christopher.
Mr Moon, of Mirfield, died suddenly in March at the age of 60. Leo was the apple of Mr Moon’s eye and they regularly attended Mirfield Children’s Centre in Taylor Hall Lane.
Mr Moon’s son Paul and daughterinlaw Angela decided that a fitting tribute would be a donation to the centre.
They have handed over £1,000 which was used to buy two benches, a wigwam, a picnic table, a couple of trikes and a play road, traffic signs and Leo’s favourite – a crossing patrol’s lollipop stick.
Angela said Mr Moon loved the centre and was always impressed with its work helping hundreds of young children throughout Mirfield.
Angela, 30, of Lower Hopton, said: “When Christopher passed away we felt it was only right that we give something back.
“He would have loved to know he had contributed to making the centre even better for local families.”
Centre manager Gillian Haigh said: “It’s such a kind gesture and it is fantastic that we receive donations of this kind.”
The centre is run by the charity Action for Children and there are 960 children under five in Mirfield who can benefit.
