Rotary Children's Hospice Family Holidays is a charitable organisation run by the Rotary Club of Medway to provide holidays for children's Hospice guests and their families.

Each year since 2009, self-funding Rotarians have taken 6 families originally chosen by Demelza and Ellenor Children's Hospices to Disneyland Paris, the participating Hospice is currently just Ellenor. Together with a sponsored medical support team and the self-funding Rotarians, the holiday 'makes dreams real' and provides family memories of a lifetime together. Up to 2019 the team have taken 69 families, 7 of whom sadly no longer have their sick child.

Your donations to the Rotary Club of Medway Trust Fund will help us to continue the valuable work that is necessary to add real and lasting pleasure to the lives of families who otherwise would not be able to enjoy this shared experience.  The holidays often come at a time when the family is going through a difficult patch, without any certainty of their future life together.

We know from experience that the holiday adds real hope to their time together and the 'magic of Disney' works wonders for the special little guest around whom the trip is centred.

Sadly we know of at least 7 of our guests who are no longer with us - but at the time of their passing, their parents have contacted us to re-emphasise the difference the holiday made to their family life after the trip.  The memories created are a great comfort to them at that difficult time.
