Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre
Co-Treetment have partnered with Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre allowing us to combine our passion Carbon capture and off-setting with our desire to support a local charity whose work remains very close to our hearts.
We very much wanted to create a novel way for our customers, existing and new, to not only help the environment but to help a child. The stays in Skegness have over the 130 years that they have been running, proven themselves to be a welcome and valuable experience for the children that attend.
Typically the stays at the holiday centre last for 5 days and are planned with razor like precision by Alan Grimadell (chairperson for the charity) and the teams that are based in Derby and Skegness. No stone is left unturned as they coordinate the activities, food, accommodation, travel to and from the location, and ensure that any ‘nerves’ are minimised so that the experience is one that can be enjoyed by the children that go there.
Why did Co-Treetment choose the DCHC charity?
All of us are passionate about what we do, the environment and how we can make a difference; that mindset also extends to young people that through no fault of their own find themselves unable to experience what we often take for granted, namely holidays. Many of them have never been away, and may have no prospect of doing so.
There’s a mixture of young people that can join the holiday centre, they might be young carers or looked after children. The break from routine gives the youngsters time and space to relax, make new friends and enjoy themselves in a supportive and structured environment, and in the care of our fully trained staff.
For many children, the relationships gained remain with them for the rest of their lives.
The residential centre is on Scarborough Avenue, a short walk from the seaside, for more information about the centre then please use the link provided here https://www.dchc.org.uk/about-us/the-centre/

It couldn’t be easier, if you want to help in the funding of a child so they can go to the holiday centre in Skegness whilst helping the environment then go directly to the shop page which is here https://www.co-treetment.com/shop/
We have set up the tree purchases for the DCHC using the charity logo and options to buy 1, 3, 5 or 10 trees. Of course you can add more of these into the basket depending on the total number you want to use for your donation.
