Maidstone Salvation Army need £2,600 by the end of the month as part of an urgent appeal to send local children, who would not otherwise get a holiday, to a summer camp.
Generous donors have already raised £3,400 this month - more than half the money needed to send 40 disadvantaged children on a five-day activity break in Sussex, which allows the youngsters to take part in sports and crafts in an environment designed to boost their self-esteem.
Each place costs £350, most of which is subsidised by the Salvation Army and parents, but the charity needs to raise another £150 per child by the end of this month.
“If you would like to be part of this fundraising effort that will make a huge impact on the lives of children who are facing some challenging situations then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
