Thank you to the family of the late Fred Rothwell for the sum of £480 from donations at Fred's funeral.
Fred sadly passed away age 88yrs recently and although he never went to the camp he had supported us over the years and in Fred's memory his family has continued to do so.
This money will go towards giving a child a much needed holiday by the sea.
