Holiday to Spain? Why not!

Every year we offer the opportunity to go on holiday for anyone that chooses to. Previous holiday destinations have included Butlins, The Calvert Trust, Blackpool, Tenerife, and even Jamaica.

This year service users from two of our registered services teamed up to go on holiday to Lloret De Mar in Spain. Chris Coles, Deputy Manager,  gives us a sneak peak into the experience…

It was an extra special holiday for some of us, as two service users who have been dating for many years had the chance to go on their very first holiday together, which certainly made this holiday extra special for them.

Another service user experienced his first holiday abroad for many years with his housemates. He usually prefers to stay closer to home due to the worry about his medical condition, however, with careful planning and help translating his medical protocols into Spanish by his consultant, he felt reassured knowing all measures were put in place to ensure he was safe whilst away in a different country.

We enjoyed many activities, including a trip on a glass bottom boat and visiting a historic castle at the top of a very high cliff. The train ride to the top was very frightening, but the views in the end were well worth it. The car lovers of the group had a thrill-seeking day spent at Port Aventura and Ferrari World, where everyone managed to become speed kings for the day.

I have been lucky enough to support service users from IH to many holiday destinations, however, this holiday was up there as being one of the best. I got to see two services come together and enjoy a fantastic time away in the sun.

Muchas Gracias to everyone that attended for making the holiday such a success.
