The Border Holiday Group

Charity description

The Border Holiday Group logo
The Border Holiday Group, an unincorporated charitable association, organises Coach Holidays to Europe for the Sick and Disabled from the Borders Region and Southern Scotland.

The Border Holiday Group aims to provide a holiday of a lifetime to Europe for sick and disabled people who would otherwise be unable to travel, and at the same time provide their carers at home with a much needed rest.

The group consists of twenty-four people who are taken on a ten-day coach holiday to a venue in Austria, Germany or Switzerland.

The disabled have no worries about mobility or medical assistance because they are looked after from the moment they arrive at the local departure point for the holiday until their return. Each has their own helper who will care for them throughout the trip.

To provide these holidays the Group needs to raise approximately £26,000 for each trip. The Group Leader, his medical team and the helpers are all volunteers, for whom this is a working trip, using their own holiday time to care for those less fortunate than themselves.

Charity No: SC038524
