Family Breaks

Something we think is really important at Children’s Cancer North is creating positive, enjoyable experiences for children, young people, and their families, going through cancer treatment.

It can be an incredibly difficult and stressful time for everyone, so giving families the opportunity to make happy memories together is a really important part of their cancer journey.

Thanks to the kindness of everyone who fundraises for us and the generous support of The Askew Family – who wish to give the gift of a holiday to families affected by childhood cancer – we are now able to offer short breaks to Center Parcs at Whinfell.

The midweek or weekend breaks at Center Parcs in Whinfell, Cumbria, are a chance for families to relax, unwind, and spend time together in a location that feels a million miles from wards 4 and 14 at the Great North Children’s Hospital.

“We had such an amazing time at Centre Parcs and wanted to say thank you for a special break away. Autumn really loved this holiday and it gave us a chance to feel like a family again. I felt like her Mam for the few days we were away and not just a care giver to her”

-Louise, Autumn’s mam
