CHICKS is a national children’s charity which provides some of the most disadvantaged children in the UK with free, week-long breaks in the countryside and by the sea. Since being set up in 1992, CHICKS has grown tremendously and has helped over 13,500 children. Each week a group of children from different backgrounds come together in Devon, Cornwall or the Peak District to enjoy some exciting indoor and outdoor activities. Rock climbing, face painting, horse riding, trips to the beach and theatre are all but a few of the activities that are available for the children. Scott Dunn has funded a week at the Cornwall retreat for 16 children. CHICKS aims to form positive childhood memories, therefore all of the activities are designed to encourage potential and improve confidence.
