Amelia’s Retreat Holiday Home Has Some New Items
Posted on: 08/05/2018
Amelia’s Rainbow Charity has a holiday home retreat at Hoburne Naish which is a holiday park based in New Milton.
It is offered to families in Dorset whose children are suffering from chronic, life-limiting and terminal illnesses.
“We have been able to buy some new electrical items thanks to a donation from J.P. Morgan which has been a great help,” says Natalie Newman, Charity Administrator and Fundraiser. “We have been able to purchase a number of items which include a new television for the lounge area as the old one had become rather temperamental!”
(J.P. Morgan employs 4,000 people at its technology and operations centre in Bournemouth and has a strong history of community engagement).
In all two televisions, a play station, a hi-fi stereo system and a sound bar have all been added to the holiday home from the donation. “We take bookings for either a week or for a weekend and the holiday home sleeps up to six people,” says Julie O’Donnell, one of seven Trustees. “We try to make sure the families can have a really good time together.”
Two of the other trustees are founders of the charity, Karl and Chantel Cox, who are the parents of Amelia-Grace Cooper after whom the Charity is named. Amelia’s Grand-mother Maureen is also a trustee and takes a very active part in the running of the charity and her Grandad Bob is also actively involved at all the events.
