REBEL Woman – good point – but the cost of the adult’s place is far more costly than the child’s. We would never consider sending a child without a parent or carer, so by charging the parent, we could end up by not being able to send the child, especially if the parent could not afford to go. We founded the fund 16 years ago to make it a family event, as even the parents need some respite care, and it is an ideal opportunity for some one-to-one time together. The magical experience of Disney, Christmas and children is totally enhanced with the parent being present, so we would find it very difficult to change our criteria at this stage. I respectfully encourage you to come along to our next meeting on Tuesday, May 29 at 7.30pm at the Blue Boar, Eye, and help us to raise funds and to keep Rudolf alive in Peterborough for years to come. I know of 400 families which would support that call. Thanks for your input though. I would also like to add that, being an ex-serviceman myself, I am totally delighted that our mayor, Mr George Simons, has also chosen Combat Stress as one of his other charities, and I personally look forward to working alongside them for the good of both the charities. John Fox. (Secretary).
