CHAOS is raising funds to provide free camping holidays for disadvantaged children from 5 of the poorest East London boroughs

How CHAOS began
CHAOS was started by 3 school friends from one of the poorer boroughs within East London.  Recognising their own good fortune, they decided to help others who hadn't had the same opportunities in life.  

How is CHAOS run
The charity is run entirely by unpaid volunteers and funded by donations and appeals.  Each year, the charity raises funds to run summer camps in Norfolk near the seaside, away from the pressures of City life.  Camps encourage the children's participation in sport, games and team building activities, improving their communication skills and building their resilience.  Running our summer camps costs around £30,000 and covers food, transport, equipment and other costs. Last year we provided holidays for 48 children.

Why we need help with funding
When we set up this charity to help alleviate poverty, never in our wildest dreams did we expect the situation to become worse! Each year we are oversubscribed for places on our camps and it is very sad to be turning deserving children away due to a lack of funds. Please help us.
