Burns Camp - £33,200

Burn injuries can require years of painful treatments and aftercare and children can face many problems adapting to their scars, rebuilding their self-confidence and reintegrating into a society that isn’t always kind to people who look different.

Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital’s Burns Unit, which is the largest specialist Burns Unit in the UK, runs two week-long, residential Burns Camps each year – one camp for younger children (aged 5-10) and one for older children (aged 11-16). Both camps provide fun activities geared towards rehabilitation and increasing self-esteem.

The cost of sending one child to the camp, as well as the staffing costs, is £1,328, and we would like to be able to provide this unique opportunity to 25 children.
