Helping to support a local charity
We are proud to announce our support for the following Charity for 2012/2013
The West Berkshire Alzheimer's Society.
Following the success of the last few years our aim for the two years is a minimum of £10,000
Starting our fundraising off is Emma Holland, Marketing Co-ordinator and Charity Committee member running the Reading Half Marathon on Sunday 1st April 2012 a distance of 13.1 miles.
Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said ‘We are delighted that Emma is giving her time to support Alzheimer’s Society. One in three people over 65 will die with dementia. It is a devastating condition and can affect anyone. ‘As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like Emma to help us continue our vital work. Emma completed her run and intends to continue to do other half marathons in aid of charity.

Charity Evening 2010
Yes! the year is complete for 2010 and we are pleased to announce that Camp Hopson Staff and Customers tripled the fundraising goal of £4,000 to raise a whooping £12,354.06
In February last year, a group of staff including Jenny Banham, Emma Holland, Wendy Dixon, Mandy Kinson and Chris Rice set to raise £4,000 during 2010 for the Newbury and District Cancer Care Trust.
The money came in from coffee and cake mornings, fashion shows, quiz evenings, cosmetic events, a world cup sweepstake and in-store charity boxes.
Best of all was our September 2010 Camps Canter - five laps round Victoria Park which over 60 people turned up to take part in.
The cancer care trust is also to be our Charity for 2011 and a further fundraising target of £10,000 has been set.
The Newbury and District Cancer Care Trust – a local charity for local people providing support, care and information.
