'The family had a holiday which otherwise they could not afford. It gave them something positive to look forward to which they needed as they have had a very difficult. They loved the new holiday home, change of scenery and the many activities on offer especially the swimming pool.The referral process was simplified and did not embarrass the family in delving too much about their desperate financial circumstances. Your charity demonstrates wonderful compassion in these challenging times'.

'The family had a marvellous time enjoying the superb leisure facilities. Indeed, this was their first holiday for 3 years.I was impressed by the charity's organisation and complete thoroughness;it certainly fills a real gap in our community with these holiday trips for families experiencing difficult times'.

'My family Had the pleasure off staying in this caravan from the 4th till 8th July, beautiful spacious clean caravan, children had a ball, loved the swimming pool and my oldest child had archery, wall climb, water walker and snorkelling and scuba scooter lessons thanks to the generosity off this project. Our holiday has been very much appreciated and we all had a ball as a family unit, where my children were stimulated and energised.'
