“I am running the 2018 Great Manchester Run to raise much-needed funds for the charity ‘Family Holiday Association’, the only national charity dedicated to providing British seaside breaks and day trips for families struggling with some of the toughest challenges life can bring.
For over 40 years, the Family Holiday Association has provided breaks for UK families struggling with issues such as disability, severe and sudden illness, bereavement, mental health issues and domestic violence.
The charity was founded on the belief that holidays are a lifeline, not a luxury, and this is a key principle that survives to this day. The majority of families they help have never been away before. A simple break from a stressful situation can create precious memories, strengthen bonds and develop a new sense of optimism.
Any donations would be most gratefully received and please don’t forget to select Giftaid to provide the charity with an extra boost.
