Sam Wood

My name’s Sam Wood and I love nothing better than to explore the great outdoors, joining in with high adrenaline activities. I jumped at the opportunity to come on the trip to Norfolk in summer of 2018. It was a fantastic opportunity to see how much confidence the children got during the week, especially during the activities, where some of them felt quite anxious and didn’t want to participate. Talking to each child was incredibly rewarding for me, as making them feel at ease was key to them having the confidence to have a go at an activity, and most of all, enjoy the experience!

I like all sorts of holidays, but one of my favourites has to be South America, which was one of the best places I’ve ever visited. I enjoy singing a lot and I am a member of two big choirs, singing a wide repertoire of music. My favourite food is good old Macaroni Cheese with beans and for pudding I’d choose salted caramel cheesecake. I absolutely loved going away with Leicester Children’s Holiday Centre and I look forward to future trips away.
