A Holiday Under Canvas

The day started brightly for one of the young people living at our Leeds Residential Children’s Home as he set off for a short summer camping holiday. Although he chatted excitedly throughout the journey the skies grew darker and darker and then as they arrived at the camp site so did the heavy rain. Undeterred the tent was soon erected and processions safely stored.
The next day the sun was shining brightly and was matched by the young person’s high spirits as he looked forward to a fun filled day in Blackpool – and what a day it was! First a visit to the zoo followed by 5 hours of riding roller coasters at the Pleasure Beach which certainly lived up to its name.
Next morning after a traditional camping stove breakfast, the rain had returned and it was time to pack up and go home. The young person returned home very happy after enjoying every moment of his trip.
