Any monies received will go towards the running costs of the event, as well as to keep the child placements as affordable as possible.

To give you a flavour of the holiday, here is the text from the Holidays Brochure. Please contact the holiday leader for more information.

We provide practical help and support to those with a learning disability, ensuring that they have opportunities to try new activities, make new friends and experience greater levels of independence. We’ll make full use of the outdoor heated pool and bicycles for exploring the site and surrounding forest. Together we can swing on the low ropes, hit the archery target and sing around the campfire.

Please note that although the site is, to a certain extent, wheelchair friendly, a lot of the activities will need some walking.
