The Principle Trust Childrens Charity

We work with social services, children’s centres and other local organisations to ensure that the families who are most in need benefit from the holidays we offer. We currently have three holiday homes located in the Marton Mere Holiday Park in Blackpool. We are a non-profit making organisation. All our funding comes from donations & fundraising activities. We are always looking for new partners, fundraisers & volunteers

What we do

Our aim is to improve the quality of life for young children and their families. The children we help could be disadvantaged socially, physically, emotionally or as a result of extreme poverty or illness. We support them through the provision of exciting seaside holidays. For the majority of us, holidays are the source of smiles and happiness, usually leaving us with treasured memories. But here in the UK, there are over 3.7 million children whose families can’t even afford a day trip to the seaside, let alone a holiday. It’s a very sad fact, but one which we want to try & help change.

Future Plans

Our plan for the future is to expand the types of holidays we offer. We will of course continue to offer holidays in Blackpool as there is a huge demand for them. But as wonderful as Blackpool is, we realised that a holiday there is not always what a family needs. There are lots of times when a week in the countryside, in calm rural surroundings would be more beneficial. For example, if a child has a life limiting condition, a terminal illness or is recovering from an acute illness, such as cancer, an accident or head injury. over the next 2 years, we have a fundraising target of approx. £100,000 to enable us to buy a log cabin, sited on a holiday park within the Yorkshire Dales.
