Campus is run entirely by volunteers, benefiting from over 25,000 hours of volunteer time every year, so our administration costs are very low (less than 5% of total running costs). We charge nothing to families or social services, so all money is raised through our own fundraising efforts and donations from individuals or charitable bodies.
As we are a small charity, all donations have a huge impact. Without your donations, we would not be able to provide desperately-needed holidays for over 150 children every year. Every penny we receive helps us to achieve our mission and we are incredibly grateful for your support.
How your donation helps:
£10 pays for a day’s activities for a child on Residential Project
£30 pays for a child to attend Winter Project
£50 pays for a week’s worth of activities for a child on Residential Project
£250 pays for a child to come on Residential Project
£550 gives five children a holiday on the Hippocampus Project, inclusive of all Project costs
