A brief history and introduction...
Salford Children’s Holiday Camp (Charity Number 224855) was founded in 1926 by way of endowment of an area of land on the North Wales coast at Prestatyn, Denbighshire. The camp, affectionately known as ‘The Jam Butty Camp’, was established to provide the poor children of Salford respite from life in an industrial City.
It has provided a break by the sea for thousands of children throughout the years.
A recent national review of childhood poverty has indicated that 300,000 more children are recorded as in absolute poverty than a year ago.
If there was ever a need to ensure the continuation of facilities and resources to offer holidays and development opportunities to counter the exposure to poverty, it is now.
