The Endon and Stoke Group are based in Staffordshire and have been hosting teenagers, children and mothers and children for the last 22 years and have found that the holiday makes a tremendous difference to the lives of the young people, both physically and psychologically.
The groups are accompanied by an interpreter, and sometimes a doctor. As a group we take the visitors on trips to Llandudno, which is often the first time they see the sea. Alton Towers and even a trip to London is usually on the programme (thanks to generous donors). On days that there are no group activities, we take the children to interesting places like Gladstone Pottery Museum, for walks through the beautiful English countryside and many other local places of interest. After having spent two weeks with families, older children move on to spend the second half of their visit all together at Cicely Haughton School in Wetley Rock. Again a team of local people are on hand to help make their stay there as comfortable as possible.
The group are very grateful for all the support given each year from local Churches, Rotary Clubs, WI’s, schools and businesses, without whom this Project would not be possible.
Group Coordinators: John and Julie Gater
