It is wonderful to let everyone know that we have been able to take 40 children from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland on a much-needed holiday to Hilltop Outdoor Centre in Sheringham, Norfolk this August.
We set off on Monday 2nd August from our old base – Shaftesbury Hall, Holy Bones in Leicester – with parents, carers and other family members all waving a fond farewell to the excited children and staff on the coach.
Five incredible days were spent at Hilltop, where the children enjoyed the following activities:
Beach visit (with a large ice-cream too, of course!), rock pools, zip wire, crate stacking, archery, tree top trail, assault course, air jump, bikes and much more besides.
Every day was action packed from waking up to going to bed – everyone had such a fabulous time.
‘Great to make new friends … Endless activities …Pleased I faced my fears and really proud of myself …Everyone is fantastic …Very kind staff…Scared, but had a go at everything …Happy with my progress through the week…Wanted to stay longer…
Their parents and carers said:
‘Our daughter had an absolutely amazing time, and those memories will last her a lifetime. She genuinely is so pleased that she went and as a parent I can’t thank you enough. We really appreciate it. I can honestly say it’s done her the world of good.’
‘I would like to thank everyone involved in the holiday event. Both children loved it.’
‘I just wanted to say thank you for giving my son the most amazing time, he loved every minute. You really do go above and beyond. Thank you.’
‘My son had an amazing time, thank you all so so much. We never thought he would be able to be away from us……. but he has done amazingly. Can’t thank you all enough. You do an amazing thing.’
‘My daughter had a lovely time with you all. Just wanted to say thank you.’
