Do you have a physical disability and think you would benefit from a supported group holiday in Spain in a safe and comfortable environment?
Are you fit, healthy and looking for a challenge?
One unique organisation in Hampshire may be if interest.
ICE (Integration – Communication – and Education) is a charitable organisation offering holidays for the physically disabled and their families/spouses overseas. Carers/Helpers and equipment are provided as required as well as transport to and from the airport. Each holiday also includes at least 2 sight-seeing trips. ICE was started in the early 80s with the purpose of raising funds to buy equipment for the disabled. Then one year they raised enough funds to take a JUMBULANCE abroad. After that Terry Thornhill owner of Toucan Travel (local travel agent chain) came on board and arranged and led the holidays until 2015.
I have been a helper on ICE holidays since 2013. Last year I was asked to take over as Holiday Organiser/Leader for the 2016 holiday.
I successfully lead the group 2016 holiday to Toremolinos this May and I am currently very busy organising the 2017 holiday to La Pineda in Spain. We will depart on 14 May 2017 for 10 day at The Hotel Palas http://www.palaspineda.com/ . Price: £750 per disabled person and £375 for carers/helpers. This is based on 2 people sharing a room and is for half board with wine and water included with dinner. We also provide adapted rooms; equipment as required; return transport from Basingstoke to Heathrow and local transfers and two day trips.
I am therefore looking for physically disable people who think they would benefit from a supported group holiday in the sun. They are welcome to bring their spouse or friend/family members as their carer/helper or indeed bring their own professional carer.
I am also seeking to recruit a team of fit, healthy, reliable and competent Helpers. Fundraisers are also welcome to join.
ICE is unique. There is no other group like this in Hampshire and as far as I am aware, there is only one other similar group operating in Southern England.
So, if you are physically disabled or recovering from surgery or serious illness and you think is for you please join us NOW!
Also If you feel you would like help on one of our holidays or enjoy fundraising then join us NOW!
