We are raising money to pay ground rent on our 2 lodges sited on the Hampshire coast available free of charge to children who have cancer.

New stretch target

The lease on our current two holiday homes will expire in 2023 with no option to renew.  So we need to raise cash for a new holiday home.  We would prefer to buy something made of bricks, so it's an investment for the charity but it depends on how much money we can raise over the next couple of years.  We started with a small log cabin and progressed to a smart caravan and now we have our two lovely lodges, our bigger plan is to buy something far more superior for our families rather than starting from the beginning again but whatever we can afford, we know our families will be grateful and make the most of their precious time together. 

The Thomas Ball holiday lodges are an essential service for children and teenagers throughout the UK to have a stress free holiday with their families at a very difficult time when booking a holiday themselves would be almost impossible while juggling the demands of treatment and trying desperately to continue with a normal family life.

Our vision is to continue raising funds to upkeep these wonderful holiday homes beside the sea on the Hampshire coast and to provide even more fabulous holidays for very sick children and deserving families.
