The Children We Help

We take children from all over the North West on our trips including; Cheshire, Merseyside, North Wales, Lancashire and Cumbria.

Children must:

  • Be between the ages of 6.0 to 10.5 years old
  • Have the Doctor’s/Consultant’s permission to travel
  • Be physically fit enough to enjoy the holiday
  • Be fully mobile, the terrain in Lapland makes it difficult for wheelchairs
  • Not have been on a trip like this before with any other charity
  • Be free of inpatient treatment except medication for at least 6 months
  • Be happy to be away from their parents/carers for 5 nights


Children are identified and nominated by hospitals and schools using the criteria above. The nomination is then verified by Doctors / Consultants.
