Center Parcs offer for families

Center Parcs offer for families

Aug 21, 2019

As part of their partnership with Together for Short Lives, Center Parcs are offering TWO free short breaks to families who use EACH’s services.

  • The breaks can not be taken during school or public holidays. School aged children/siblings would therefore need permission from school to miss school days.
  • All breaks must be taken before 1st April 2020.
  • Breaks can be taken during either a weekend or midweek.
  • Accommodation will be in a three-bedroom Woodland Lodge. These accommodate a maximum of 6 children/adults and up to 1 baby (under 2yr) in a cot. No pets allowed.
  • The breaks can be taken at any of the five England Center Parcs Villages.
  • Families selected should not have previously benefitted from this offer.
  • Families will need to organise/fund their own travel and additional activities for the break.

Please be aware that we cannot accept nominations for families who have already received a short-break donation from Center Parcs through Together for Short Lives. 

If you would like to put your name forward, please email by ​midday on Monday 2nd September. We will then draw two names at random to receive the short break.

  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
