We are thrilled to be working with the The Coombe Trust to enable local families to have a free week’s holiday by the sea at Westgate-on-Sea in Kent.

In 2012, the Coombe Trust generously provided accommodation in their beautiful holiday homes, along with transport there and back, for 21 people.

The holiday proved to be a great success. 21 Woodberry Down holidaymakers stayed in holiday homes provided by The Coombe Trust . The weather was mixed but that didn’t stop them from going sightseeing to Canterbury, having a go at Bingo, enjoying a live music night at the local pub and sharing meals together.

One person described the week as:

‘a piece of cake with a triple layer of icing!’

and another said:

‘Thank you for giving us this wonderful time. My kids love these times you gave us. God bless you all involved’.

MHDT and other partners on the Woodberry Down estate fund affordable day trips and outings for residents and their families every year. For more information about previous and upcoming trips click here.
