The Principle Trust
Children from disadvantaged families from across Yorkshire will be able to enjoy a holiday that they would otherwise not have the opportunity to thanks to a Skipton-based charity, The Principle Trust, being awarded a donation of £3,500.
Following our support, The Principle Trust has been able to fully equip their respite caravans in Marton Mere, ensuring they can offer free respite breaks to families from deprived areas of Yorkshire, including those who have children with disabilities.
Mike Davies MBE, CEO of The Principle Trust said, "By providing free respite breaks, The Principle Trust Children's Charity enables disadvantaged, disabled and poorly children to escape their everyday troubles and create valuable, happy memories.
“Every penny of the generous funding awarded by the Morrisons Foundation will provide essential equipment which will be used by families visiting our holiday homes for years to come."
Children and their families are referred to The Principle Trust by support organisations, such as social services, NHS Trusts and the local authorities, this ensures that the charity knows that they are helping some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
The Trust owns four caravans on Marton Mere in Blackpool where we offer holidays to underprivileged and disadvantaged children, as well as an additional two lodges on White Cross Bay in the Lake District which have been fully adapted for wheelchair access and are both equipped with a profiling bed and hoist making them the perfect location for children or a family member with a physical disability or complex additional needs.
