Childrens’ breaks on hold at CHICKS in Brentor

It was reported in the Tavistock Times Gazette on 14th September 2017 that CHICKS (Country Holidays for Inner City Kids) will not be hosting breaks for disadvantaged children at its Brentor site  in 2018.  Apparently the charity, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, has not held breaks at the Brentor centre since April 2017.  It needs to raise a six figure sum to refurbish and improve the Brentor residential centre, although they will continue to use part of the premises as their headquarters in the meantime.  They will continue to offer breaks for children at their Cornwall and Derbyshire centres.
