It has been a dream of ours to be able to offer holidays such as these to families who have already been through so much.
Our daughter Sophie is the inspiration behind the retreat and we are able to help families like yourself in her memory. As a charity, we rely solely on fundraising, donations and sponsorship plus various events we hold throughout each year.
All we ask from you is to complete the relevant forms and a questionnaire after your stay so we can send you information about who or what company sponsored your holiday. We rely on their continued support, so for them to know how you enjoyed your stay is vital to encourage them to continue to support us.
We would be very grateful to know how you enjoyed your holiday so we have a Facebook page for the retreat where you can upload your pictures and share your experience with other families, please join our Facebook group.
Sophie the Rainbow Bear also lives at the retreat and loves to spend time with the children and their grown up’s when they enjoy different activities around Rockley Park. Please invite Sophie the Rainbow Bear to your family picnic or crabbing on the beach or simply sharing a DVD with her, we would love to see your adventures.
Rockley Park has an indoor and outdoor pool, crazy golf, amusement park, restaurants, entertainment, shops and parks. You can even get a pizza delivered to the retreat if you decide to have a cosy night in!
Sophie’s Rainbow Retreat is well equipped with most everyday items, and the beds will be already set up for when you arrive. If you require the travel cot you will need to bring your own bedding for it.
You will simply need to bring your essentials, food, drink and towels for your self-catering break. You deserve a well-earned break which we hope will be stress-free so please enjoy the welcome basket and everything that comes with your FREE HOLIDAY!
We also realise that circumstances do change so please let us know as soon as you can to allow us the time to reschedule your stay and so we can inform our waiting list of guests.
We are so lucky to have people that fundraise for us or sponsorships etc so it’s really essential to spread the word when you can so we can continue to provide great holidays for people who really need it! It’s great when people decide to do a sponsored event, run, climb or even just a bake sale, every penny counts and our wonderful trustees also dedicate their time and hard work voluntarily to make these events happen.
If you can pass on our details to friends and family so they could take part in a fundraising idea of their own that would be fantastic, they could, in turn, raise enough money to potentially send another family on a special break of their own, what an achievement that would be!
Finally, please complete the following provisional booking form on the next page with the dates that you are interested in and we can then see which are available at the retreat.
Once the dates are agreed, you will receive the booking form, please print, fill in and scan back to us with a copy of photo identification which will need to include your home address, (such as a driving license). We can then send you your holiday confirmation.
If you have any questions please let us know.
Come and have a great time!
