The Principle Trust Children’s Charity, based in Skipton, North Yorkshire, asking for key workers to either nominate themselves or colleagues and friends, to be in with a chance of receiving a free holiday at one of their five holiday homes.

Originally founded in 2011 by Mike Davie, the charity work with referring services and government bodies to support children and their families.

Earlier this year the charity became aware in the increase in disadvantaged children as a result of having a parent/caregiver working as a key worker during the global pandemic.

It soon announced that they were to begin fundraising to support key workers by sending them and their children on a free break, and for the first time since opening, the charity made applications for free breaks available to the public last week.

Mike said: "There is no doubt that the children of the key workers, working hard with severe risk, at the forefront of this awful virus deserve a break with their parents to charge and enjoy family life again”.

The Principle Trust will allocate free breaks at one of their five holiday homes, depending on availability and park re-opening.

The online entry is to be nominated to receive a free hot tub holiday, and you can enter and see terms and conditions here.
