2016 Support Holidays
- 9 December 2015
DIABETES UK CHILDREN’S AND YOUNG PEOPLE'S SUPPORT HOLIDAYS FOR 2016.
Through the North Norfolk Group's fundraising activities this year we are again able to offer a limited number of FREE support holidays, organised by Diabetes UK, during the summer of 2016. These will be available for children and young people with diabetes between the ages of 7-10 and 11-17 who live in Norfolk.
The holidays are invaluable for the youngsters, allowing them to gain skills and confidence to help them deal with their diabetes among others of the same age. Some go on holiday having never met anyone else with diabetes before. So to be able to leave thinking “I’m not different from anyone else” has to make it all worthwhile. 100% of them said that they had benefited from their holiday.
If your child is at all interested, please encourage him/her to contact Jackie or David by letter or email (details can be found on the Home page). All contacts will be acknowledged on a first come first served basis.
Whilst we are prepared to fund the holiday, you would be expected to organise travel and provide pocket money.
Details of the holidays for 2016 will be available from us early in the New Year.
