By the sea: maintaining our fleet of caravans

Please help us to maintain our fleet of 12 static caravans at popular seaside resorts around the UK. These caravans enable us to provide high quality accommodation for families needing a break - even during the expensive holiday peak times.

Location

Situation

Families who need to get a break away from the stresses of their lives, need somewhere safe, warm and friendly to stay during their break. We work with many holiday providers to ensure this, but central to our work is our fleet of caravans. Furthermore, providing holiday accommodation for young families during school holidays (and therefore peak times) can be prohibitively expensive.

Solution

Our caravans can provide peak time accommodation for families at a very low cost - and the savings can go towards providing breaks for more families. Each caravan can provide accommodation for up to 30 families every year (one family per week for all 30 weeks of the holiday season), so there is the potential to help 360 families (over 1,500 people) every year. The caravans provide a homely (and for the children, fun) base for the families while they are away.
