The Calvert Trust has teamed up with the UK MS Society to offer a taster weekend for people with MS at one of its centres in Kielder, Northumberland in October.
The price includes accomodation for two nights in scandinavian style cabins, meals, and participation in any of the outdoor pursuits including an aromatherapy pool, archery, orienteering and high wires. It seems quite good value at £100 per person, so I have booked in with my family just to see what it’s like.
I expect it will be a bit strange to be on “holiday” with a whole lot of other people with MS.
The Calvert Trust provide holidays and respite care for disabled people and their carers, so I fully intend to write a review of the experience. Albeit from the point of view of a not-very-disabled disabled person.
