Companies and organisations
The success of the activities of Camp Cando is reliant on the generous support of our donors. If you would like to organise a fundraising event on our behalf please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively to make a donation please click on the ‘MAKE A DONATION’ button below.
If your organisation would like to make a donation to support one of our activities or the entire week please contact one of the team who will be happy to talk through your aspirations. For contact details please click here. This could be funding for activities including the trip to the zoo, sports/games equipment, arts and crafts equipment or simply a selection of foods for our very hungry campers and even more hungry helpers!
As well as the individual and team fundraising activities (see below), we would like to take this opportunity to thank our corporate supporters who have very kindly donated to our continued success.
