The Principle Trust has new holiday homes to offer

The Principle Trust is a cherished charity based in Skipton that supports numerous families across the Yorkshire region. Their mission is to enhance the well-being of children who are suffering from prolonged, life-threatening or disabling illnesses, struggling with mental health problems or living in impoverished conditions. To achieve this goal, they provide cost-free, week-long respite breaks for these children and their families in their holiday homes located in Blackpool and the Lake District.

As committed patrons of the charity, we were delighted to attend the grand opening of their four new vacation homes at Haven Marton Mere Holiday Park in Blackpool. We remain committed to backing the organisation with our monthly contributions and various fundraising events throughout the year.

During our visit, we were able to take a tour of one of the charity’s newest caravans and catch up with Kerry, who looks after us patrons 馃槈 You can pop over to our reels to see these. We even got to cheer Simon Thomas, charity trustee, over the finish line as he completed his gruelling 50-mile fundraising walk.

The Principle Trust expressed their excitement about the official opening of their four new respite homes and their eagerness for families to start enjoying them and the bustling holiday park. In 2023, 132 families from underprivileged and disadvantaged backgrounds will have the opportunity to experience a life-changing respite break, many of them for the first time. And annually, they provide 228 families with a holiday across both locations, Blackpool and the Lake District. The organisation expressed gratitude to all those who made this possible through grant funding, donations, patron contributions, fundraising challenges, volunteer efforts, and event attendance. They were overwhelmed by the support shown by referring partners, patrons, supporters, and funders on the opening day.

“We are indebted to Skipton Properties for their generous support. Thanks to Yorkshire businesses like you, we鈥檝e helped thousands of disadvantaged, disabled and poorly children to escape their everyday troubles and create happy memories with their families.”
