A New Committee Member at Leicester Children’s Holidays!

Our new committee member, Bryon Brotherton MBE joined Leicester Children’s Holidays in January 2022.

Leicester born; After serving 39 years in the British Army, Bryon has returned to Leicester, with his two sons and wife, Sally.

Over the years, he has had lots of experience working with young people.  Recently, he worked with the Army Cadets.  He was also the Project Officer for “Raw Recruits” Part 1, a documentary that was filmed at the British Army’s Foundation College in Harrogate.

Bryon plays the bagpipes, and has been a musical director of one of the world’s most famous Regimental Bands, The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, who hit the charts with Amazing Grace in 1972.

In his spare time, Bryon has taught bagpipes at schools wherever he has been living whilst serving in the Army as a peripatetic teacher.

Bryon joins the team at Leicester Children’s Holidays with his main focus on engagement with businesses from across Leicestershire. He will promote and gain support for the charity, as well as working with other sub committees.

Why LCH?  Bryon believes that Leicester Children’s Holidays provide a great opportunity to children that are not able to experience “going on holiday”.

Having spent the last 7 years supporting youth in detail, Bryon wants to continue with this theme – as he sees it, “youth is the future of our nation”.  Bryon is committed to working with the charity to reach out and offer as many children as possible the chance to experience the thrill of an adventure!
