Activity Holiday in Majorca Provides Respite

We were thrilled to once again be featured in the Majorca Daily Bulletin following our recent trip to the island with 17 wounded, injured and sick serving personnel and veterans. From 7th – 14th October, servicemen from the Royal Navy, Army took part in a varied programme of events in Majorca. The week was designed to build confidence and provide fun and excitement away from the monotony of the rehabilitation process, with beneficiaries treated to activities such as hiking, horse riding, water caving and climbing.
