NBFA Assisting the Elderly are offering a free 5 day Break-Away holiday to Bracklesham Bay in the South Downs from 17th – 21st February 2014. One coach is picking up from Swindon, Marlborough, and Andover; second coach is picking up from Reading, Bracknell, and Wokingham.

Before the Break-Away there will be a get together where everyone can meet, and after the Break-Away holiday we will have a Reunion Trip so everyone can get together again.

The Break-Away includes return coach transportation, accommodation, breakfast and dinner, nightly entertainment and daily excursions. While everything is included, people don’t have to go on the trips or the entertainment if they don’t want to.

NBFA Assisting the Elderly offer the Break-Aways to help people meet other people from their areas. By getting away from daily routines people are able to relax, have fun, and hopefully make friends with others there!

Who can apply?

To qualify for the free Break-Away people must be aged 65 or over, on a low income, and able to get on and off a coach and to look after themselves. We have people come on their own, in couples, with their siblings, with neighbours.

Who pays for it?

We receive most of our funding from Trusts and Foundations. We do not receive any money from the Government.
