A CHARITY which supports people with learning disabilities is appealing for funds toward an activity-packed summer camp.
The Brandon Trust operates services across North Somerset, including sessions at Scotch Horn and Strode leisure centres in Nailsea and Clevedon.
Now, it is hoping for help to pay the £21,500 it costs to provide a week-long getaway for up to 20 youngsters aged 14-19 at Woodhouse Park in Almondsbury.
They will get the chance to try out archery, cooking, go-karting, orienteering and woodwork during their stay in August.
The camp gives participants the chance to gain independence and confidence while also providing vital respite care for families.

It takes months of planning and is costly due to the number of staff required to meet the often complex and different needs of some of those attending, including people who use wheelchairs.
