Spruce up for children's camp
A CENTRE near Winscombe which offers holidays to disadvantaged children has been given a makeover thanks to a team of volunteers.
Bristol-based commercial property agents Colliers International staff spent the day at Barton Camp, repainting the sports hall, weather- proofing the picnic equipment and tackling the gardens.
The Bristol Children's Help Society residential centre at Barton Camp was set up in 1884 to support disadvantaged children from the city and surrounding areas and runs free or heavily subsidised holidays.
The seven acre site, which features dormitories, kitchens, classrooms, swimming pool, assault course, playing fields and nature trail relies on fundraising and assistance.
