Guest, companion & parent stories

Here are just a few of the wonderful Youth Cancer Trust holiday stories from guests, their companions as well as parents.

  • Had a great time, not only in terms of fun, but in meeting new people and understanding more about such a serious illness.You really are inspirational, and have made a big impact upon me, and makes me value certain things a lot more.

    Many thanks, not to be forgotten. Thanks for everything.


  • Wow. What can I say? Not only has this been the best Bournemouth holiday, it's the best holiday I've ever had. I've made some amazing friends who I hope to keep for life. I've had an absolutely amazing time and I honestly can't thank you enough. You've made everything better, and easier to cope with.

    Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to have a break and meet people who know exactly how I feel. This holiday is defiantly what the doctor ordered.


  • Once again I've had an amazing time and what a way to celebrate my birthday. Thank you all those who have made this possible. It really does make a difference.


  • This week has been amazing, I have enjoyed all of the activities and have had such a good time. Cant wait to come back next year. Thank you so much!


  • Jim and Brenda, you both are the most amazing people I have ever met. I genuinely miss you both when I'm not here. I love Bournemouth so much and I get so excited when you invite me back. It's been my 3rd time here and the best time so far!

    The people I have met here are absolutely amazing. I have had such a good time singing Great Balls of Fire with Jim. You both make me laugh so much you have made this house like my favourite second home! Brenda I'm so very sorry for making you drag me to the doctors, despite me feeling ill I had a wicked time. We had really great activities again like, Go-karting and Dry ski slopes.

    Oh and Brenda I love your new hair it looks great! Thank you so much for the gift bags with the Shaving foam. (Is that for my chest? Ha-ha!) Thanks again. You're both absolutely great and I hope to come down soon again!
