Sense Holiday Appeal 2020
Will you help a child like Mia make exciting new discoveries on a Sense Holiday?
Your gift makes a difference to the whole family
As you can see from the comments Frances, Mia’s mum, made on our holiday feedback form, Mia’s Sense Holiday gave her a wonderful week away and was a massive support to the family.
“Mia enjoyed so many activities on her Sense Holiday including swimming, snow tubing and sailing for the first time. She also got a good supply of cuddles!
I know she loved being away with the other children and the volunteers. Mia got the chance to be that bit more independent on holiday, sleeping away from home, making new friends. She came home happy and relaxed and with a beautiful scrapbook holiday diary full of photos.
I took Mia’s brother and sister camping that week and I was able to spend brilliant quality time with them. And how amazing it was to have some uninterrupted nights of sleep. For that week, life didn’t revolve around appointments and medical routines and I now feel recharged and better able to cope.
Thank you so much for making this possible for us. I was hanging by a thread before Mia went on the Sense Holiday. To leave Mia with such competent, caring, kind people felt incredible. You’ve given Mia some wonderful experiences!”
Please will you give a gift today so another child like Mia can enjoy a voyage of discovery on a Sense Holiday?
All aboard for a train ride
Mia and her fellow holidaymakers relished riding in a steam train through the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. The motion and noises of the train gave them a whole new sensory experience.
You could choo, choo choose to give £15 and pay for a child to go on a fun-packed steam train ride.
Ahoy there for a day’s sailing
Mia loved the opportunity to go sailing for the first time. Out on deck with volunteers Emma and Rachel, she could feel the wind rolling over the boat and was really excited by the changes in direction and speed as the wind picked up.
Your gift of £25 could pay for a child to enjoy life on the ocean wave.
Ski slope shenanigans
Mia had the chance to go whizzing down a dry ski slope on a specially-adapted tube. With Sense volunteers on hand to make sure she was comfortable and safe, a fantastic fun-packed activity was enjoyed by all.
£120 could give eight children the opportunity to slip, slide and speed down the slopes.
