A PROJECT geared at improving the lives of children in care homes is holding an activity weekend.

St Mary's College Kids Camp will be held at Durham University on March 5 and 6.

The children, accompanied by their carers, will be given a range of activities, including sport, art and a treasure hunt. The weekend also provides carers with respite.

Kids Camp has been running for five years, initially in Hampshire, and now in Durham. For details, call 07986 029647 or 07816 941604.
