“We’ve done so much this week that I never thought I would, sailing, barbeques and rib rides! The best bit has being able to meet new people who understand and being able to have some fun! We have all been through the same thing. I have made some great friends. I would definitely come back to The Trust”.
- Rebecca, 16
“Tyler gained lots of confidence and lots of new friends who he is still in touch with. I’m really glad he went. To meet children who have been through the same thing is invaluable. Whilst sailing, Tyler met a volunteer who had had the same cancer as Tyler and was in his twenties. That gave him a lot of hope for the future.”
- Mother of Tyler, 15
