Derby Kids' Camp is a local children's charity fully funded by public and private donations; we receive no governent funding and so it is thanks to the generosity of public and corporate donations that we are able to comitnue to provide these much needed holidays for so many children each year.
Every year we are lucky enough to be 'adopted' by a small number of companies/ organisations whose staff and customers make a huge fundraising effort over a 12 month period to raise funds to pay for a number of children's holidays.
In most cases our corporate sponsors organise their own fundraising activities, but the Derby Kids' Camp fundraising team and our small 'army' of volunteers are more then willing to support events when required.
A key factor which all of our sponsors consider to be hugely important in supporting our Charity is our commitment to keeping administration, staffing and property costs to an absolute bare minimum - in most cases zero cost! - thanks to our team of over 150 unpaid volunteers who run and staff the holidays over the summer, our volunteer management team who run the Organisation throughout the year in their spare time without payment or expenses and thank to our friends at Cosy Direct who provide us with free warehouse storage for all our equipment out of season.
Each year we need new companies and organisations to adopt DKC as their Charity of the Year.
A member of our fundraising team would be happy to arrange to visit you and your colleagues to discuss the work we do to support local disadvantaged children, to explain all about the holidays and how the money is spent to ensure every child enjoys a holiday they will never forget.
Many of our sponsors also join us on Camp for a visit during the summer to experience Camp first hand, to meet the children and volunteers and usually get involved in a few activities themselves!
In addition, a number of Organisations have used the build and takedown of Camp as an ideal opportunity for a very hands-on team building event!
