Families enjoy a fun day out


Families from the Sleaford area enjoyed a day out last week thanks to Home-Start Lincolnshire.

The charity, one of the leading family support charities in the UK, took two coaches full of local families in need of a break to Twinlakes.

Community liaison co-ordinator for Home-Start Lincolnshire, Emma Haisman, said: “A lot of our families don’t get out together as a unit very often, so a trip like this provides the opportunity to make family memories which will last forever.”

The trip was a big success, with one mum saying: ‘It enabled quality bonding with my sons and having my home visiting volunteer with me allowed me to have 1:1 time with my eldest son and support for myself’, while another said ‘It helps families more than you know’.

Home-Start Lincolnshire were grateful to their main sponsor of the day Kesteven Children In Need.

Emma said: “Without their support this fantastic day and vital support work couldn’t happen.”

○ Home-Start Lincolnshire is currently recruiting fundraising volunteers.
