Abseil in memory of my Dad
Raising money on behalf of my late Dad for Derbyshire Children's Holiday Centre because this charity was close to his heart
DCHC gives 660 residential holidays a year to children from Derby and Derbyshire having difficulty in daily life. Nominated children come from homes where the impact of financial hardship, deprivation or abuse has created a situation where stress is common and there are few comforts.
Charity Registration No. 218063
DCHC is a charity which was established in 1891 to provide Derbyshire children having troubles in their home lives with a holiday in Skegness, Lincolnshire. At the present time it provides 660 holiday places per season.
My late Dad Noel had a very difficult childhood so was fortunate to be taken on holiday to Skegness at the age of 10, this was the first time he’d ever seen the sea and was a much needed break away from his troubles at home.
He spoke so fondly of the children’s centre and the amazing memories he made there, so when I found out about the abseil, I jumped at the chance as I know if my Dad was here he’d have definitely wanted to help raise funds.
The abseil is 90ft and it’s over water, so I am quite nervous!!
I’d be SO SO grateful if you were able to sponsor me.
