Salford Ceremonial Mayor and Mayoress visit
The Ceremonial Mayor and Mayoress visited us on the 13th of February 2019 as one of the selected charities to benefit from The Ceremonial Mayor’s Charity Appeal. They spent the afternoon down at camp having a look around and also visiting our Community Café. The Salford Children’s Holiday Camp really appreciate and value their support.
Funding for leaflet distribution
Many thanks to Belief – a Rhyl-based charity which supports other charities in the area. Salford Children’s Holiday Camp was delighted to accept a cheque for £187.50 to fund a leaflet distribution in the Rhyl Journal to publicise the Community Café and the community room facilities.
Use of the facilities provides a useful community resource and brings us much-needed funds throughout the year.
Thanks to Mark Ellis from Belief for making this possible.
New sports Flooring in the play barn
Our new sports flooring has been laid in the play barn and is ready to be used, next job will be to decorate the walls….watch this space!
Improvements at Camp for the new season
This year we have invested in some new facilities which we hope will be appreciated by our visitors.
We now have guest Wi-Fi available – feedback from last year told us that this would be much appreciated by party leaders and parents as part of their holiday experience.
A selection of Salford Children’s Holiday Camp merchandising will be available very soon including wrist bands, money boxes, sports bags, pens and of course – buckets and spades. Great to take home a souvenir of a super holiday at Camp. Thanks to Eddie Lewis of ECL Plastics and Paul Blain for their support getting this ready.
A new dishwasher is to be installed shortly, as the old one was starting to let us down and a smart new floor has been laid in the play barn. These have been purchased with funding from the Cotton Industry War Memorial Trust.
A full programme of electrical works has been completed. Thanks to the Booth Charity for funding this.
Beautiful red blinds have been put up in the Community room to add a splash of colour. Great for our Community Café visitors on Wednesday afternoons 1-3pm . All welcome.
Thanks to all of our funders and supporters for the chance to develop and improve the facilities for the benefit of the children of Salford and our local community in Prestatyn.

Salford Red Devil’s Foundation
We were invited to Salford Red Devils AJ Bell stadium by John Blackburn from the Salford Red Devils Foundation on Thursday 21st September 2017 to do a charity bucket collection with all proceeds going to our camp.
On the night we raised £650 which will help towards purchasing some vital items.
Thank you to everyone who gave generously on the night and a big thank you to John and Joyce Blackburn at the Salford Red Devils Foundation for being so helpful and accommodating, we look forward to seeing the foundation down at camp in the near future.
Thanks to Robbie Paul (ex New Zealand & Salford player) for supporting us on the night.
