FAQs

QWho can go on our holidays?

A

We take children between the ages of 6 and 10. Anyone can nominate a child for consideration.

QHow do we decide who goes?

A

There are 2 reasons we will consider a child for a free holiday:

  1. The child would not normally get another holiday
  2. We believe the child would benefit from one of our holidays.

QMy child went to Mablethorpe last year; can they go again?

A

Yes, we are happy to take children more than once if they meet the two conditions above and are still 10 or under.

QHow will my children get to Mablethorpe and back?

A

We run a weekly bus service to take all our children to our Holiday Centre and return. We pick up in Leicester, Loughborough and Melton.

QWhat if my child is ill on holiday or wants to come home?

A

If your child is ill, we will inform you and seek immediate medical advice and provide transport to local medical facilities.

If your child wants to come home, we will contact you to discuss your wishes and those of your child. If you wish, you may collect your child at any time (upon provision of proper identification and authority).

QMy child needs medication. How will you deal with this?

Each child’s medication is kept separately and given out by our staff as prescribed.

We ask parents to pay £20 towards the cost of transport for each child. Everything else is free.
