Two of our Trustee's (Paul and Eddie) attended Hydrofest as the children's camp were the chosen charity beneficiary for fundraising on the day.
What a fantastic event it was with lots of stalls giving freebies away, live music, live art, free bar, food and more and all in glorious weather.
We are extremely pleased to announce that £5765 has been raised from all the companies who attended as well as fundraising on the day including our collection buckets.
Thanks to Jimmy, Sam, Kyla and everyone else at Holland Horticultural, all the companies who attended and everyone who donated.
Salford Children's Holiday Camp were once again a beneficiary of the Salford Ceremonial Mayor's Charity Appeal and Lesley from the SCHC Management Committee collected a cheque for over £12k from John Mullen the Ceremonial Mayor as his tenure came to an end.
John passes the reigns to the new Ceremonial Mayor Ann-Marie Humphreys who I am pleased to say has selected the children's camp as one of her nominated charity beneficiaries for 2022-2023.
Thank you to everyone involved, the money will go a long way to helping the charity over the next 12 months

We have some new play equipment down at the camp, a pentagon set of swings, a basket swing that can take disabled children, a mini roundabout for younger children a Titan swing carousel.
