Our award-winning Disabled Supporters Association (HUDSA) are appealing for help after severe water damage struck their two adapted static caravans.
The specially designed caravans stationed at Primrose Valley provide short breaks and holidays for disabled people and their families at low cost and not for profit.
However, a burst pipe caused terrible damage earlier this year and HUDSA has been working with Primrose Valley to provide alternative accommodation for families who had already made a booking.
Unfortunately, the extra cost on top of the repairs is not covered by the insurance and this has left HUDSA with a short fall in funds needed to pay next year’s ground rental and other fees.
As a result, they have set up a Go Fund Me page with a £2,000 target – now they are after some help from the Poolie public.
“We would like help in raising the money to cover this, in order that we can continue to provide affordable breaks for these vulnerable service users and their families,” explained HUDSA’s Neil Appleyard.
“Without help, it is going to be difficult to keep the caravan running so anything that people can donate will be going towards a truly worthy cause.”
Last year, HUDSA were presented with the highly-prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service for their magnificent and pioneering work with disabled people across the town and region.
