Will you help send a child who is deafblind on an unforgettable Sense Holiday?

Exciting new activities

Sense Holidays are jam-packed with activities that can boost a child’s confidence, and increase their understanding of the world. Each child is supported by an experienced volunteer, and activities are adapted to meet the child’s individual needs – so there’s nothing standing in the way of exciting activities like sailing, swimming, or even riding a pony!

A first taste of independence

Children who are deafblind will need support throughout their lives, and for many, a Sense Holiday is their first taste of independence. Crucially, Sense Holidays also give parents - often full-time carers to their children - the vital opportunity to rest, and spend time quality with other family members.

Making new friends

Sense Holidays offer children who are deafblind the wonderful opportunity to communicate and play with other children of a similar age. Not only can this result in long-lasting friendships, but it can also help to build a child’s confidence and help them come out of their shell.

How your gift can help

£25 could pay for another three children like Teegan to visit the farm on a Sense Holiday this year. On this trip, children can experience the wonder of meeting new animals for the first time, like soft furry rabbits and feathery chickens.

£50 could pay for group of six children to experience all the fascinating sights and smells of the wildlife park, which Teegan loved on her Sense Holiday.

£100 could pay for a whole forest school session for a group of children at Macaroni Wood. They’ll try out daring activities that will inspire their senses, such as fire lighting, shelter building and even cooking on an open fire!
