  • Need


    A survey we carried out showed that 67% of OB families never have a holiday or break due to financial constraints of caring for a sick child, one parent usually having to give up work.


    By financially assisting with a family holiday, short break or a simple wish day that the child & family request. This will then allow the children and their families time to enjoy quality time and create lasting positive memories.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To allow children and their families time to experience quality time and positive memories


    » - Family Holidays
    » -Days out to Theme Parks & Zoos
    » - Pamper Days

    Success will be from the feedback we receive from the children and families concerned. Being able to successfully provide a child's wish for a day.

  • Impact


    The project will ease some of the financial constraints OB families have by providing a holiday or short break for them and their children. Long term it will have provided positive memories. We will demonstrate the success of this project by monitoring the feedback we receive from these families.


    There is a risk that some of these children become too poorly to sustain a holiday. Some of our children are oxygen dependent and even on the lung transplant list. We would deal with this by providing a wish day to cater for the child's health.


    Funders of this project will receive a monthly email report on the project detailing the ongoing and forthcoming activities that have been supported.
