Fam­ily bonds

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

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).
