Toma Fund is delighted to announce that it is now able to take bookings for its brand new caravan holiday home based on the beautiful Northumberland coast at Berwick upon Tweed.
Short respite breaks are available to families from the North East and Cumbria who are supporting a child/young person through treatment for cancer and for families who have been bereaved by childhood cancers in the last 4 years, this can be longer at the Trustees discretion.
Caring for a child/young person who is going through cancer can lead to stress for the whole family. When it feels like your whole world is falling to pieces around you and your life revolves around hospitals, doctors, appointments etc then the thought of a short break away from it all seems like a dream.
Toma Fund is now able to help make that dream a reality. Our caravan based at Berwick Holiday Park is the perfect home from home with lots of activities to keep every member of the family happy. It is close to home in case of emergencies but while you are there it seems like a million miles away from all the stress that is going on and it gives families a chance to recharge their batteries and feel normal again for a little while.
Families who feel they may benefit from a short break at Toma Fund’s caravan should speak to their Clic Sargent Social Worker or other professional that they have contact with or ring us on 0771 217 3515 for more information.
Can you help us to provide these holiday breaks?
Thanks to the generosity of so many individuals, companies and groups who have supported our Some Time of Your Own Appeal, Toma Fund has been able to purchase its luxurious caravan holiday home but the appeal still continues to enable us to provide these breaks, free of charge, to families for at least the next 5 years.
Every break we provide costs around £200 so please help us to provide a break to as many families as possible by donating to our Some Time of Your Own Appeal. Cheques can be sent (made payable to Toma Fund) to our office, donations can be made online (click donate to see how) or you can donate by text - STOO11 £amount (up to £10) to 70070.
