Between February and December every year, CHICKS organise free, week-long holidays for disadvantaged children aged 8-15, providing youngsters from up and down the country with some much-deserved respite, renewing their self-confidence and ultimately giving them a chance to be children. Since its inception in 1992, CHICKS has hosted retreats for nearly 16,000 young people, giving kids from a variety of backgrounds the chance to enjoy an unforgettable break, get stuck in with some fantastic activities and return home with lifelong memories and countless new friends.
Through the Scott Dunn Charitable Fund, we proudly fund an annual CHICKS retreat in Cornwall for 16 children, yet this year we would like to do more. Whilst free for every child and their families, the cost of a place stands at almost £1000 and with demand far outstripping supply, it is more important than ever that we do our bit to ensure the continuation of CHICKS' incredible work.
With this in mind, we need your support to raise £15,000 to fund another retreat and with a handful of ways to donate, getting involved couldn't be easier. Whether it's in resort at one of our Explorers Kids Clubs, over the phone with one of our travel specialists or by visiting our CHICKS Challenge Just Giving page, every donation will make a huge difference to the lives of underprivileged children in the UK. Thank you for your support.
