April is on a mission to impact the care systems around the world and would love to hear from you if you can assist in any way. Every child deserves a loving home and an opportunity to build a bright future for themselves. Get behind what April is doing and get in touch today!

Giving to others is important to April and if it’s important to you too, maybe you’d like to make a difference to your own health, wellbeing and life, as well as make a huge difference to other people’s lives too, and get involved with April’s Wonder Camps, adding wonder, adventure, entrepreneurship, fun, happiness and hope to disadvantaged teenagers around the world.
Wonder Camps are not just about health and fitness, but about adding wonder to children’s lives, as children, just like adults, need weekend breaks and vacations that will change their outlook and lives for the better, and give them hope of a fulfilling future full of love, wonder, success and happiness.
Step 1: Inner city children travel by coach to the countryside for a weekend Wonder Camp. Part of the problem in society is that poorer, disadvantaged children stay within a square mile of their home and school, are bored out of their minds, and find it hard to believe they have a bright, interesting future ahead of them as they haven’t seen or experienced a different environment for themselves.
Step 2: Inner city children travel by train to the seaside for a week Wonder Camp. It’s hard to believe in this day and age that a lot of children haven’t even visited Buckingham Palace or the Science Museum on a school day trip, no wonder experienced a train ride or felt the sand between their toes, or had a dip in the sea.
Step 3: Inner city children travel by plane to a sports resort like Club La Santa, Lanzarote for a two week Wonder Camp. For a lot of us, travelling around the world, seeing all the amazing wonders, experiencing different cultures and meeting new and wonderful people is part of our daily lives and we couldn’t imagine it changing and being forced to stay in the area that we live in, permanently grounded, unable to be inspired by all the amazing opportunities out there, however, for disadvantaged children, that is the harsh reality, they don’t experience any of the fabulous wonders in this world because they can’t afford to, yet their behavioural problems and lack of hope for the future ends up costing the Country much more because a lot of these children end up in trouble and consequently, the prison system.
Have you ever come back from a new and interesting place and not felt inspired, de-stressed, happy and motivated to improve your life? Of course not. You are full of beans and ready to take on the world. That’s exactly what happens to children too. They don’t come back the same. They can’t stand around doing nothing on the same street corner with their friends like they did before they travelled. Their eyes have been opened to the possibilities. They have hope burning inside of them and a vision of a fantastic future. Once experienced, this can’t be undone.
By providing good food, activities, fun, positivity and wonder to every child, is what will change the future of our world. If April had her way, every child in primary school would go to the countryside, the seaside and travel abroad to go skiing and participate in water and beach sports, continuing these trips throughout secondary school and college. Governments are not capable of doing this alone and needs organisations, schools and parents to get behind this initiative and ensure it’s rolled out across the whole of the planet to the benefit of all children.
