Emergency Caravan Appeal – FIRE

Neighbouring caravan destroyed

The neighbouring caravan was completely destroyed

In the early hours of Wednesday 29 April 2017, one our two caravans situated at Craig Tara in Ayr was badly damaged by a fire that destroyed a neighbouring caravan.

Thankfully, nobody was injured. The family staying in our caravan were evacuated and returned home safely the following day. We would like to thank the

staff at the Holiday Park and emergency services for their swift actions and professionalism.

It seems likely that our caravan will be beyond repair, and whilst insured, the process of putting in a claim will naturally take time. We are therefore facing a situation where families, some of which we had already offered a break to, will miss out in 2017.

That is why we are asking our supporters for financial help now so that we can take immediate action and ensure that as few families as possible are affected.

Craig Tara is a particularly popular site for the families we help. Set in a beautiful location it offers stunning views over the Firth of Clyde and of course, a sandy beach! To lose the opportunity to provide breaks at this location would deny so many children the pleasure of building their first sandcastle or flying their first kite, and giving parents and carers a renewed sense of hope and happy memories to sustain them. We are determined to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Help us replace our caravan at Craig Tara

We know how important the breaks we offer are to families, and the vital role our caravans play in giving families a life changing break.

You can help us to continue this vital work by donating now.

Some families can only ever dream of a break away together. With your help we can continue make dreams come true.
