Here's the why.

Over the last 12 months we have found many of our families have been unable to enjoy a full week at our caravans in Mablethorpe.

They are often young parents with little time left and very young children to ensure plans are in place for. As many of our families are Midlands based, 200 mile round trips from home are extremely demanding and often they need to return home early for treatment, palliative care and sadly to die.

For some time Maria and Mark have been thinking of an alternative, not a replacement, to Mablethorpe, and we want to share with you our 20/20 vision. We have found a lodge in Sherwood Hideaway, within Sherwood Forest, on the Derby/Nottingham border.

The lodge has 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large lounge, kitchen and utility room along with a very large decking area and hot tub. The degree of comfort for someone at palliative care and near end of life care is so much better than the caravan with the size of the beds and size of the lodge along with the hot tub and the extremely peaceful spot tucked away in a clearing in the forest.

We are now prepared to launch and undertake a completely separate fundraising project to secure the lodge for so many families that need it and we need your help.

You can support our fundraising project for the lodge by buying squares which form the lodge plan, ranging from £50 to £200, you can see the plan and how the squares work at the bottom of this post. We will produce a glossy hard back book which will feature everyone who purchases a square and will be part of our ‘Memory Share Holders’ group. £1000 or above will give a full page in the book.

There will be a listing on the new website for every memory share holder and an open weekend to attend in the New Year. We have started the squares at such a low price as we want to make it accessible to all – from family fundraising, Scout and Guide Groups, small businesses and large corporations.

Anybody can give something, anybody can make a difference.

We need to raise £150,000 to make this happen, we know that’s a huge amount, but we hope you can see why it will make such a difference to so many people. 

Please, please think of us when you are considering your next fundraising challenge, when you hear of a local company deciding who their charity of the month will be, if the company you work for are generous with donations to local causes. We can’t do this without you.

Every single pound helps, together we can achieve this.

This memory home will give us

  • Availability all year round
  • Peaceful Setting
  • Space & Light
  • Warmth & Comfort
  • Safe Environment
  • Hot Tub
  • Cycle Rides
  • Forest Walks
  • A place to touch nature

How you can help and what you will receive

Our 20/20 vision project is a chance for you to become one of our memory shareholders.
As you can see below, we have sectioned off the layout plan of the Lodge we want to purchase.

Once you become one of our memory shareholders you will receive:

  • Memory shareholder certificate
  • Entry in to our Shareholder book
  • Entry on to our 20/20 web page

The pink & blue squares are sold squares, please help us fill in the rest.
