Peak District Hols boost for city kids

AN extra 100 disadvantaged city youngsters are to receive summer and weekend holidays this year after a children’s charity announced plans to expand.

The charity, which has an annual budget of around £30,000, said the expansion had been made possible because of funding from two organisations in the past couple of years, totalling about £36,000.

It has received more than £30,000 from Westfield Derby which, with the help of Capital FM, formerly Ram FM, raised the cash in two years. The additional £6,000 came from the Cosy Fund, which offers support to small charities and voluntary organisations.

This means Derby Kids’ Camp – which has been running for 37 years – will this year be able to increase the number of children it takes on week-long holiday in the Peak District, in July and August, from 250 to 300.

It also aims to take up to an additional 100 youngsters away for weekend breaks, on top of the 60 to 100 children it usually takes.
