Holidays for Allseasons and Tingdene have teamed up with the Family Holiday Association, a charity that provides holidays for families in need.
"THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY OF HOLIDAYS FOR ALLSEASONS AND TINGDENE, IN 2017 WE WERE ABLE TO HELP 8 FAMILIES HAVE A FANTASTIC SHORT BREAK. THE BREAKS HELPED FAMILIES DEALING WITH SOME OF THE TOUGHEST CHALLENGES LIFE CAN BRING, INCLUDING THE EFFECTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL ABUSE, AS WELL AS MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH ISSUES, CHALLENGES AT SCHOOL AND ISOLATION. THE PROCESS HAS BEEN VERY EASY FROM OUR POINT OF VIEW, WITH STAFF ALWAYS QUICK TO REPLY AND ON HAND TO HELP WITH ANY QUESTIONS."

OF THE FAMILIES SAID THE BREAK GAVE THE CHILDREN NEW EXPERIENCES AND CREATE HAPPY MEMORIES
"The break was a fantastic opportunity for us to take a break from the daily routine. The children were extremely excited, they always wanted to go away and felt very sad every September when they go back to school and listen to other children telling stories about their summer holiday. Now, they are very proud and could not wait to go back to school to tell their friends and teachers about their holiday. Although the holiday was the last weekend of the summer, we were very luck that the weather was nice. We had a great time when we came back, everybody was happy and relaxed."
"I tried swimming, I normally take the children to swim but never join them because I did not feel confident with my swimming skills and felt embarrassed. I was more confident at the less busy swimming pool there. I will go swimming and I will always join the children swimming at our local leisure centre."
"We all loved the bungalow and the space of the place. We enjoyed the beautiful surrounding gardens and it was great to see the boys just being themselves, exploring the area. The break made us realise we must try and spend more time together as a family."
"A break from routine and stress. Time to be together and have time out for each other. Seeing the boys and us relax, enjoying the lovely surroundings."
