WINTON WANDERERS FC LEOPARDS ARE OUR FIRST GROUP VISITORS OF 2024

 

Winton Wanderers FC are one if not THE largest football clubs in Salford and strive to make football available to all children  - The club is based in Eccles but covers all of Salford with over 60 teams and over 800 players.

The Leopards team stayed for 2 nights which was fully funded by Salford CVS as part of a well-being grant (see #salfordstories) - this grant was a joint application by Paul at SCHC and Mike at Stepping Stones Creative.

The team trained onsite and enjoyed the play area, games room and their time by the sea including trips out to bowling, beach etc...and have created memories that will last a lifetime.

Everyone at SCHC enjoyed having you stay with us and we do hope you come again in the future.

 

 

Memory of Fred Rothwell Funeral Donations

 

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.

 

Harold Riley Funeral Donations raises over £7k for SCHC

 

Harold Riley sadly passed away recently, a renowned and highly regarded Salford artist who had supported the camp over the years with funding for art projects via the foundation - his family decided on donations instead of flowers and raised over £7k for our charity.

Here is a snippet from the Just Giving page - Following the recent death of the Salford artist Harold Riley, the family would like to thank everyone for their kind messages of sympathy and support.

As the funeral approaches, in lieu of floral tributes, the family are asking for donations to the Salford Children’s Holiday Camp, a cause that was close to Harold Riley’s heart and one he had supported for many years.

Everyone at SCHC would like to thank the family for their donation and watch this space as we are currently planning a lasting memorial for site.
