The weekend of 15th to 17th September saw this year’s Breakaway event take place at Lodge Hill, a specially adapted, fully accessible children’s centre in West Sussex where specialist staff run an action packed programme of various challenges and fun activities for young people. They can experience abseiling, canoeing, zip wire, archery, rifle shooting, swimming, team games and much more. For many it is the only opportunity of a holiday during the year.
Members of Eastbourne AM Rotary Club were in attendance and thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we were able to take some 20 young people away for the weekend
Every year since 2007 this special project has been jointly organised and run by Rotary Club of Eastbourne AM together with SASBAH. Breakaway provides fun and exciting residential breaks for those with any physical and/or learning disabilities where they have new experiences and spend time with others in a similar situation. It is often the only opportunity they have to be away from home, meet new people, try new and challenging activities and not be judged.
