The Harriet Davis Seaside Trust has been severely hit by the Covid 19 Crisis. Our families that visit with children that are severely disabled, often have a limited life span and are in need of constant care and attention. There is a real lack of suitable accommodation to allow a severely disabled child to take part in a family holiday. So our charity is a real life line to children and families across the UK.
This year, due to the lockdown restrictions and because all of our beneficiaries are shielding, we have had to disappoint many families and children who were really looking forward to their holiday with us.
How you can help
A small donation can help us to maintain our very special service, as well as keeping safe the wonderful team of family helpers that support our families when they visit. We want to successfully continue the 30 years we have been offering specialist holidays to our families, some of whom rely on us totally as they find the problems of going on holiday are not only daunting but sometimes insurmountable.
About Our Trust
Harriet Davis suffered from a rare degenerative metabolic disease. She was unable to speak and lost most of her motor abilities. Seaside holidays in the company of friends and family, were a source of great joy and enrichment to her and thus all who knew her. Harriet died at the age of eleven and the Trust was established as a tribute to her shining spirit. It was her wish that all families with children in a similar situation could enjoy a seaside holiday.
