Allergy UK attends Over The Wall Camp
Allergy UK had a fantastic weekend collaborating with national charity Over the Wall to provide an action-packed activity camp for children with allergy and their families.
Over the Wall supports young people facing serious health challenges through residential camps across the UK. Often, allergic disease is associated with feelings of isolation and anxiety. Last weekend’s camp was open specifically for children and young people with complex allergy and their families, with the goal of promoting inclusion and allowing campers to gain confidence and self-esteem.
Along with Allergy UK staff, medical and nursing volunteers with first-hand experience of allergy were on site at all times, supporting children to get involved in various activities without being defined by their allergy and giving parents some ‘me’ time.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Over the Wall for putting on a brilliant residential camp.
