Double Your Donation at no extra cost to you!

Posted on

The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017We are excited that the Family Holiday Association has again been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

The challenge is a unique way to to make your donation have double the impact! Donations made to our project via theBigGive.org.uk will be doubled during the campaign. If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Giving TuesdayChristmas Challenge when your donation will be doubled and make even more of a difference to us.

Our aim this time is to raise £8,000 from individual donors (which will be doubled to £16,000). Whilst this is a little more than last year, it’s a target we believe we can reach. With your help of course!

Precious memories

We will be raising money for our Shades Day Fund, a fund we created earlier in the year to help with the maintenance and replacement of our fleet of caravans. Our caravans are located at Haven or Butlin’s holiday parks throughout the UK, and provide vital holiday accommodation near the seaside for hundreds of struggling families every year.

Alison's familyLast month we received a letter from Alison. Alison and her family were referred to us by their Family Support Worker in Rotherham. She is a wife and mother whose life was turned upside down in 2015 when she was diagnosed with cancer for the second time. We helped her and her family go on a short break to our caravan housed at Haven’s Primrose Valley holiday park in North Yorkshire.

You can read her letter here. It is Alison’s story in her own words, and we think she is very brave to have shared it in this way.
