July 2022:



Thanks for a lovely week's holiday where the boys enjoyed the swimming pool and crazy cars.It was a much needed break for the family in what has been a very tough year.It was a gesture of kindness that we shall not forget and wish your charity continued success in the amazing work that it does'.
- Mrs D.Gourock, 25 June 2016

'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'.
- Head teacher, Primary school,Greenock, 1st July 2016

'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'.
- Willie Wilson,Manager,Branchton Community Centre,Greenock, 24 August 2016.

'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.'
