  • Need

    Need

    To help children whose restricted lives revolve around Hospitals, wheelchairs, illness and pain. In many cases excluded from family holidays, school trip and excursions. They have no great adventure to relive and smile about when times are tough, which they nearly always are.

    Solution

    Katie's offers a 10 day adventure in Italy, filled with thrills and surprises for groups of 20 children with mixed disabilities and illnesses. There are no parents or regular carers on the trip, the children meet new people and make many new friends. The children return happier and in better health as well as having embraced:- More Independence, Team Building & Team Spirit, A Physical and Mental Challenge, Social Interaction which all raises their Confidence and Self Esteem.

  • Impact

    Impact

    When a child sinks into a dark place due to the pain of their illness or disability, or becomes unhappy and unwell at the thought of more time in a wheelchair or in hospital for more treatment. The video and pictures of their trip is what they cling onto. It brings a smile to their face as all the memories of the spills and thrills they experienced in Italy with Katie’s Ski Tracks comes flooding back to them.

    Risk

    If the funding targets are not reached the trip cannot proceed.
