“We had the best time ever,  I even made a new friend” – Tyler, aged 12

“My favourite part was making huge sand castles, I enjoyed everything” – Harrison, aged 7

What some of the Parents to say:

“We all had fun on the holiday. Just spent time together relaxing.  It made it feel more manageable. Showed there are positives in life – we can have fun together as a family” – Zoe, Felthorpe, March 2020

“The break has allowed us to relax and enjoy some fun time together where we were not constantly having to think about making things accessible. The children could also see Dad being ‘capable’ of doing more things rather than just being poorly” – Katie, Rougham, July 2020
