A HOLLYWOOD star's camp in Kincardine gave local families experiencing serious illness the chance to go wild and have some fun.

The late actor Paul Newman's charity, Over the Wall, allowed them some quality time together by providing a free break at Tulliallan Castle.

Camper families swam, danced, took part in challenge courses, played games, climbed and got involved in art and crafts, archery, talent shows and discos.

Kevin Mathieson, CEO at Over?The?Wall, said: "The illness of a child can often mean that spending time together as a family can be difficult.

"It can also mean that brothers and sisters of a child with illness adopt a caring role, which means they too can miss out on parts of their childhood.

"At Over The Wall we provide memorable camp experiences – not only for the children who have serious illnesses, but for all members of the family that may be affected."

The charity hosted the residential camp in partnership with Crohn's and Colitis UK, specifically catering for families with children who have Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and other forms of inflammatory bowel disease.

Over The Wall cater for as many as 130 different conditions providing?life-changing, memorable?experiences for children with illnesses and diseases including cancer and leukaemia, blood disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, skin conditions such as severe eczema, severe allergies, heart conditions, kidney disease, other neurological disorders and more.

This year marks the 20th year that the charity has been running the camps, having originally been founded by the Hollywood legend, Paul Newman, in 1999 with Scottish businessman Joe Woods.

Each year they support more than 800 children and families in the UK.
