Precious memories

We are 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 familyBack in September 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.

What do I need to do?
