AN activity holiday was enjoyed by 40 children thanks to the generosity of local businesses and the hard fundraising of volunteers.
The youngsters were able to try their hand at a range of adventure activities including horse riding, canoeing and crab fishing during a five day break in Anglesey, organised by charity Camp Project Wales.
The organisation is run completely by volunteers who spend all year fundraising enough cash to take the children away for free, sorting out a range of activities to keep them smiling.
This year, the group tried some fairly unusual crafts including making scarecrows and friendship bands, as well as juggling some circus skills workshops!
The holiday was partly funded by Ineos Chlor, who donated £200 to the cause.
Janet Ward, Ineos Chlor's community relations manager, said: 'This is a wonderful opportunity for the children of Halton to experience activities that they wouldn't normally have access to.
'Ineos Chlor is delighted to support this charity, as it is a fantastic way for children to develop whilst having fun and it helps the children to improve their social skills whilst giving them a much needed confidence boost.'
Camp Project Wales was established 30 years ago.
