Dear friends

I am asking you to make a gift to our annual Holiday Sponsorship Appeal.

Many young people helped by your gifts deal with challenging circumstances all year round. For some, SU Holidays provide respite from difficult situations, giving space for healthy relationships in a safe environment. They hear a message of hope - that they have worth and that God loves them - often for the first time. For others sponsorship simply means that they can enjoy a holiday which would not be possible otherwise.

We want SU Holidays to be accessible to everyone - families who need help to send siblings, refugees with no way of affording a holiday, those from disadvantaged backgrounds who attend heavily subsidised Motiv8 events and those volunteers who cannot fully contribute to their costs.

Your giving achieves so much, but what could your gift do?

  • £30 - can cover travel fees, getting a young person to camp.
  • £46 - can pay for one day of sponsorship.
  • £100 - can enable four campers to enjoy a week of adventure activities.
  • £250 - subsidises a young person to attend a Motiv8 holiday.
  • £980 - would meet the food costs for 30 young people and 12 leaders on a six night holiday.

Please give generously below so that we can enable more kids to get to camp this year.

Thank you for your support, we are currently 38% of the way to meet the forecast need!

The difference in my boy within a week was absolutely amazing; he came back so out of his shell, he's coming forward now... he will start a conversation., he's more sociable, even in school his attitude to things has changed and getting better. I feel like I am really getting to know my son for the first time, and we are having so much fun!
