Alice’s Escapes http://www.alices-escapes.co.uk
Alice’s Escapes is a charity run by a team of volunteers committed to providing free holidays for families with a seriously ill child. The idea for Alice’s Escapes came after Alice and her family spent a week being looked after by the Torbay Holiday Helper’s Network (THHN), based in Devon. All accommodation, food, outings and activities were given with the compliments of local businesses. After many years of gruelling treatments, Alice and her family were able to step back and experience ‘normal’ family life. They aim to give this opportunity to all such families to ‘escape’ and enjoy some peace and relaxation in the beautiful Lake District.
