Funding a school trip that boosted my boys’ confidence

Hawarden & District Relief in Need Fund

A single parent and carer of twin boys was awarded a grant of £408 to help send both children on a residential school trip to Llangrannog.

“Through the grant I was able to purchase a laptop which helped my son start school and gave him confidence in catching up with homework and keeping up with his class. It also helps to show me what he’s been doing.

The Llangrannog trip that the grant helped fund was my twins’ first residential trip. Both of them have hearing loss and one has bowel problems so this trip has provided an opportunity they would not normally have had. The school trip has helped with physical development, boosted their confidence and let them be part of a team. It has helped to show them that they are no different to their classmates.”
