To travel to one of our holiday locations across the UK and support the running of a five day residential holiday, (usually Monday-Friday) for people living with dementia and their carers.

We ask for a willingness to support us for the duration of one of our five day holidays a year. We will always try to give plenty of notice about upcoming dates.
