For many of us February is the month of love. With the warm afterglow of Valentine’s Day still fresh in the air, I’d like to take a moment to tell you how for some of our guests a break with our charity has been more than a holiday – it has been the road to love.
I work for Revitalise, an amazing national charity that provides respite holidays for disabled people and carers. To mark Valentine’s Day, we made a video entitled That’s Amore. It is a celebration of love and affection, documenting the heartwarming story of how lovebirds Carl and Tracey met and fell in love at our Southport centre, Sandpipers.
Our research shows 46% of disabled people and carers have feelings of apprehension about being isolated and stuck in one place. That’s why we work hard to provide our guests with a truly meaningful holiday experience, one in which they are able to have fun, build friendships and most importantly, create memories that we hope will last a lifetime. We rely on the generosity of individuals to make these breaks possible.
