The Property Management team at the Met Office has been supporting CHICKs in a variety of ways, from skydiving to gardening.
Country Holidays for Inner City Kids (CHICKs) is a charity which provides free six-day breaks for disadvantaged children and young carers from across the UK. The children invariably suffer from the consequences of poverty, neglect and abuse.
CHICKs teaches the children they can achieve anything and reach what may seem like impossible goals.
The Met Office's Property Management team has raised money for the charity and done some volunteering for a day at its base on the edge of Dartmoor.
