Carers and their family benefit from a break with CLC Word Resorts & Hotels
CLC World Resorts & Hotels' charitable initiative – CLC World Charity Holidays – donates accommodation to those who need it most. They've been providing space at one of their resorts to provide unpaid carers with some well-deserved respite.
Carers registered with Carers Trust Network Partner Carers Support Centre Bristol and South Gloucestershire enjoyed a wonderful weekend at CLC Hustyns in Cornwall. The guests had full use of the 100-acre Hustyns site and all the amenities that can be found on the resort including the sauna, steam room, a fully-equipped gym, swimming pool… and even a crazy golf course!
Susan, who is a carer, and her family enjoyed the chance to spend some quality time together:
Really enjoyed it, we also really needed it. The resort was better than we were expecting, very nice, calm and not too busy. It was a beautiful area . . . At home we have care [support workers] in a lot of the time so we never really get to relax or switch off."
Thank you to CLC World Charity Holidays for its generous donation which has helped carers to access a break to enable them to cope better with the challenges of caring.
