Heswall Disabled Children's Holiday Fund
Hosting free camps for children with disabilities
Every year we host two camps for up to 30 children aged 9-15 at each camp. At our camp the children benefit from the independence it offers them. For many, this is the only time they spend away from home all year.
Each camp is attended by around 30 children & 30 volunteer helpers, as we try to aim for a one-to-one ratio of children to helpers. The programme for each camp includes both on-site activities as well as day trips out, including to the zoo, theme parks and local areas like Blackpool or Weston-Super-Mare.
Our on-site activities cater for everyones interested, with activities from pottery painting to wheelchair rugby to music and acting.
How you can help
At Heswall Camp, any help is welcomed. Whether it's becoming a volunteer, donating to the charity or providing any services that can be of use, every contribution is appreciated. We believe that with the help of the community, we can make a positive change in the lives of children.
