Raising funds – #projectlighthouse

Matthew and the Project Lighthouse team are continuing their journey around the coast ticking off lighthouses and raising funds for ABOAB.  They are amazing and we are very grateful.

Here is the 83rd lighthouse that they have visited – Tyne South Pier Lighthouse.  Visit www.projectlighthouse.blog to follow their progress and please donate to support the riders and to fund the breaks away for people living with terminal illness.


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our guests, supporters, referrers and property owners!

We send our very best wishes for 2022.

Fabulous Feedback!

We are so pleased to be able to start arranging breaks away.  Thank you to the generosity of our property owners and our fundraisers two families have enjoyed breaks away in the Lake District in October.  The feedback that we receive shows us the enormous value of the breaks.  One relative said…..

“She had the best time and we can not
thank you enough it has truly made our
year. Thank you so much for being so
kind it is a memory myself and my family will never forget.”
“I want to thank the owners for being so
generous. It was very, very nice to get
away for a few days, really relaxing.

Three Peaks Challenge

Thank you to Anthony Costigan, Gareth Malson and Mike Merriman who completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge raising over £1,500.  This is amazing, we are very grateful to them all!

We are back!

What a year it has been!  Most importantly we hope that you and your loved ones are all well.

In between lockdowns we were able to organise a holiday in the Lake District for a family in need of a break away.  We were so pleased to be able to do this during this difficult year.  We are now in touch with our wonderful referrers and generous property owners and hope to be able to make more matches now that restrictions are slowly being lifted.  As ever our priority is to make sure that our guests and property owners are all kept safe.   We are actively looking for more properties so please do get in touch if you may able able to help.

More news to follow!


We are thrilled to be featured on @GivtoUK!  We are one of their nominated Charities for September.  The money raised will enable us to arrange more breaks.  For more information please have a look at their website  www.givto.org #Givto

Stay safe

Due to the current guidelines, at the this time we are not arranging breaks away in beautiful places for our guests.  We look forward to a time when we can start taking referrals.  We hope that all our property owners, referrers, supporters and friends are safe and well.

Covid-19 update

We hope that all of our supporters, referrers and guests are keeping well during these unprecedented times.

After careful consideration, we have reluctantly decided not to accept any referrals until 2021.

We are currently working to expand the portfolio of properties that we are able to offer to the guests who are referred to us by our network of care professionals and will contact referrers once we are able to start organising breaks away in beautiful places.

Please do contact us if you are able to support our work or have a property that you would like to add to our scheme.
