Sick children encouraged to put health behind them for a day at Camp Simcha summer camps in Hendon
Children suffering from life-threatening and terminal illnesses were given a chance to put their health concerns behind them for a day at a summer camp.
Hendon-based charity Camp Simcha held its annual day scheme last week, when they encourage children to have “as much summer fun as any other kids”.
The activity days are supported with full medical support for the sick children.
Staff from bank Goldman Sachs helped out at one of the fun days last Wednesday as part of the company’s community team work initiative.
Children enjoyed party at the Queens Road headquarters and a bowling outing before returning for games and a bouncy castle.
Caroline Maurice, who works for Goldman Sachs and lives in East Finchley, said: “We were privileged and humbled to spend the day with some very special children, their siblings and such enthusiastic volunteers.
“It was great fun for us and a very rewarding experience and we were overwhelmed by the commitment and dedication shown by the Camp Simcha team.”
