Work In Their Shoes with Sophie
Sibling Residential Trip
When it neared the end of the final day, the mood in many children shifted slightly; the familiar feeling of a wonderful time coming to an end. I found that I felt the same. You could see the joy these children had experienced over the past few days; being surrounded by others who understood the difficulties of having a sibling with a serious or terminal condition, and being able to leave all responsibility at home for a few days. I could see how much this trip had meant to everyone; not only the children, but the staff and volunteers too, who could see first hand where all their hard work and dedication, and generous donations from our supporters, ends up.
After many hugs, waves and goodbyes, we all said farewell to one another and to Kingswood, and I echo the children’s question of ‘when can we do this again please?’
