“The smiles never left our faces” – A family story.

the smiles never left1Give Us Time would like to thank all of our supporters and in this instance in particular Center Parcs, who make it possible for us to receive emails like this:

Dear Give Us Time team,

My family & I cannot thank you enough for giving us such a wonderful break at Center Parcs.

From the moment we got there, all life’s daily stresses & strains were forgotten about.

Initially, we thought we might book a few activities & really make the most of what was on offer. But in the end, we decided that we just needed to rest & recoup.

We got there Friday evening & cooked our tea. Just sitting around the lovely big table with no tv in view was something we had previously overlooked. As we ate, we all chatted & laughed.

We spent the days walking around the beautiful site and swimming until our hands & feet were very wrinkly. Our son said we had raisin hands!

We laughed so much & the smiles never left our faces!

We really did have the best time & reconnected as a family unit.

It made a real difference to us & just having that time together out of the usual routine really took the world off our shoulders.

We are eternally grateful. Thank you so very very much.

The Van Staden family.

Give Us Time would also like to thank the family for their wonderful words and reminding us all the reason we do what we do.
