On an SU camp surrounded by faithful witness, supported by Christian role models, character develops, faith is breathed into life and good friends are made that last a lifetime.
At SU we believe financial hardship should never stand in the way of a child's chance to benefit from this life changing experience.
Amy's day-to-day family life is tough going, and although she receives regular support from the council’s youth service, what she really needed was a break – the chance to get away from the troubles of everyday life. Amy heard about SU holidays at school and thought they sounded great, but she knew her family could never afford such a luxury. Generous gifts like yours were able to cover the cost and give Amy this much needed experience. Since the holiday, Amy has expressed an interest in returning as a young leader next year and, as she puts it, in wanting to ‘look into God more’.
We do all that we can to ensure that our holidays are affordable for most people and we already subsidise the costs. However, we receive multiple requests each year for financial support from children whose families just cannot afford for them to attend.
In 2016, 138 children received some funding to enable them to come on a Scripture Union holiday. In 2017, with your help, we'd love to more than double this figure to provide funding for 300 children that would otherwise not be able to come on a Scripture Union holiday.
'This really is the stuff of fond memories and growing friendships that last a lifetime. It's a turning point in so many young lives, a time when, surrounded by faithful Christians, children meet with Jesus and grow spiritually. Jesus told us "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."'
Bex, Holiday Leader
