“We tried so many new things and laughed such a lot”
"We had the most fantastic holiday"

Dear Friend
For over 25 years we have been offering single parent families the opportunity to spend quality time together. This year, we’re excited to be hosting our first adventure weekend for single parent dads and their children.  They'll enjoy a variety of activities from canoeing to campfires, archery to abseiling, together with other families.
If you know any single dads (they don't need to be the primary caregiver) with children aged 8-15, please can you let them know about our 'dads only' weekend. We'd love to have them join us for two days full of adventure.
Over the years, many families have said the Take A Break Action Holiday was the best time away they’d ever had.
It would be great if you could share this with any dads who'd benefit from it.
Kat Seney-Williams
