On Friday 1st July I'll be completing a 'Sprint Triathlon' (750 metre Swim, 20km Cycle followed by a 5km Run) to raise funds to support the annual SVP Children's Camp (more info below)

Location: Yorkshire Dales – near Skipton

The S.V.P. Leeds & District Camp, is a special works unit, within the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a fully registered charitable trust, and for the last 80 years or so, has been providing children in need from West Yorkshire with a weeks holiday they would not otherwise have had.

The Camp is run by a dedicated 40 strong team of volunteers, all of whom offer time from their annual holidays each summer to help run and organise the camp. The volunteers are from varied backgrounds and are able to bring differing skills and attributes to help make the children's stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

One of the biggest benefits the Camp provides, along with the fun and escapism a camping holiday can offer (both for the volunteers and the children), is its sense of well-being and belonging. This is evident in the fact that many of the volunteers, who put so much time and energy into running and organising the camp, once attended the camp themselves as children. This is probably one of the main reasons why the SVP Leeds & District Camp has such a valuable and long tradition, and really is the "SVP Caring in the community".

The camp caters for up to 100 children and throughout the week the children are divided into teams and go out on trips together. The children then return to the campsite for tea and then compete against each other in teams at different sports events, which culminate in a prize-giving ceremony at the end of the week.
