Appeal for volunteers: Caudwell Children Charity
Hi Ladies... please see news item/appeal received from the Caudwell Children charity - for your information if interested:
Appeal for volunteers to make disabled children’s dream holiday to Florida a reality
The colour purple is synonymous with magic and mystery and is known to stimulate imagination and inspire high ideals.
It’s no surprise then that Caudwell Children, the national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children, and their families, has named their trusted group of volunteers, who wear a distinctive purple uniform, as the ‘Purple People’.
And now the search is on to find the charity a further 32 inspirational, and dedicated, ‘Purple People’ to accompany a group of 25 disabled children on a magical, dream holiday to Florida in December 2014.
Volunteers, from any walk of life, need to be over 18-years-of-age. In return for their inspirational support they are guaranteed to have a life-changing experience, in some the most famous theme parks in the world.
With 104 children losing their lives each week, and over 2,200 children spending more than 6 months of their short lives in hospital, it’s easy to see why the charity chose to give children, fighting life-threatening illnesses, the opportunity of a once in a lifetime holiday overseas.
The respite holiday, to the Sunshine State, will see families enjoying the magical delights of Disney World. This has proven to be the perfect environment in which families can enjoy quality time together, experiencing, perhaps for the first time, a level of normality in their lives.
