Giving kids a break

St. Claire's School Coin Collection for Kids' Camp

Date: 24.05.2016

Year 11 pupils from St Clare’s School in Mickleover, Derby have been collecting small change for Derby Kids’ Camp, which has reached a grand total of £118 - enough money to fully fund an entire holiday for local child in need of a break.

The students were inspired by learning support assistant Sammie Charnock, who is also a volunteer with the children’s charity.

Derby Kids' Camp is an entirely volunteer-run charity which provides free summer camping holidays to over 300 disadvantaged young children each year from the Derby and Derbyshire region.
