Take a holiday for charity

National charity Sense needs teachers and teaching assistants to volunteer to take a holiday this summer to support children and adults who are deafblind.

Throughout the UK there are currently 356,000 deafblind citizens, 4,000 of which are children, a number that is set to increase by 60% by 2030.

The charity, which has been working for over 50 years campaigning for those who are deafblind, runs 26, week-long breaks for children and adults. The holidays take place throughout England and Wales including city breaks in Bristol and Cardiff and treks as far as the Yorkshire dales.

Volunteers will receive a free week long summer holiday and could be doing anything from making sandcastles, to camping whilst making a real difference to the lives of those effected by deafblindness.

Those interested in applying must be over 18 years old, no previous knowledge or training is necessary as there will be support and training provided for volunteers.

The deadline for applications is March, places fill up quickly so enter soon to avoid disappointment. For more information, visit www.sense.org.uk/volunteering or call 0845 127 0060.
