Sunshine and Smiles – May
Hi all, it’s Jammin here! My-oh-my it’s getting nice here – we’ve had some wonderfully bright days. Who says it always rains in the UK?
There’s sunshine and smiles everywhere – it fills me with joy to know there are families enjoying the sunny beaches up and down the coast. Is there anything better than a beach day?
It’s wonderful to hear the children that come to stay bubbling with excitement as they head off to spend a day at the seaside. After a day full of sandcastle building and splashing in the waves, I usually end up with a very sandy floor, but I don’t mind! I’m just happy to see the children with huge smiles on their faces!
The families that come to stay are in need of just that – the chance to smile and bond together away from the troubles at home. I feel immensely proud that I can help to lift their cares away if only for a few days.
The team at the charity get some lovely stories from the families who have had a break which they pass onto me. One that always sticks in my mind is a story from a Dad called John who stayed with me at Primrose Valley a while back with his two children. It really touched me and I thought it was too important not to share.
Things at home had taken quite a turn for John and his children Philippa and Daniel after the company John was working for went bust. This is what John had to say…
It’s stories like this that remind me how something so simple like spending some time away with me at the coast can be such a lifeline for families going through so much at home. And it’s thanks to people like you that I can continue helping people – so thank you!
We’ll speak soon,
