CF Team Testimonials

Anna Buckley – Great Ormond Street Hospital

"The CF Holiday Fund have been absolutely amazing in offering grants for holidays and activities to the children with CF in our centre. Often these families have not had a break for a long time, if ever, and their day to day lives are full of the great burden of treatment typical to CF. Having this separate time to create special memories as a family is so important and I find that the children talk positively about their experiences for a long time after. Thank you CF Holiday Fund, where would we be without you."

Nicky Lock – family support worker – Birmingham Children’s Hospital

"I have found the holiday fund to be a wonderful resource, it is so flexible and fully appreciates that holidays come in all shapes and sizes and mean different things to different families. It has assisted many of our families from BCH to get a much needed break away and is sensitive to the needs of siblings too, recognising that CF affects everyone in the household. Laurie is a ‘mine of information’ and always keeps me up to speed with applications. Keep up the fantastic work!"

Katie Smith – Paediatric CF Social Worker – Southampton Children’s Hospital

"Laurie, her team and all the charity’s supporters work so hard to give our CF families a stress-free holiday, where they can focus on enjoying a well-deserved break!"

Marie Donnelly – Cystic Fibrosis Social Worker – Barnardo’s

"The CF Holiday Fund has provided some invaluable family time, and time away from hospital and CF that our children and young people have desperately needed. I don’t think it is possible to overestimate how much the families appreciate the time you give them, and the value of the memories and experiences they have had! I don’t know what we would do without you!"

Joanne Frain – Welfare Advisor to the North West Midlands Cystic Fibrosis Service

"I just want to say a big thank you from the North West Midlands Cystic Fibrosis Service and their families as the Holiday Fund have supported a number of holidays over the past few years. The North West Midlands Cystic Fibrosis Service have families with numerous financial situations but with your support they have been able to holiday at home and abroad. We hope as a service the Holiday Fund is still able to support our families with amazing holidays, as for some these have been the only holidays that they have been able to have for a number of years."
