Cameron loves travelling which is why his mum Lorraine has applied to Family Fund for help with holidays almost every year since 2008. ‘Family Fund has allowed us to get away and do things we wouldn’t normally do. It allows us to have some quality time together.’

Barnardos helped Lorraine complete the initial Family Fund application back in 2008, ‘I had heard other families talking about the support Family Fund had given them and we wanted to have a break and take Cameron away. Over the years we have been to Butlins, Blackpool, Manchester, Drayton Manor and now London.’

‘Until a year ago I was also the main carer for my father so whilst he was in respite it meant we could take Cameron away, and I could relax. Without the help of Family Fund we would have only been able to have a break once every two years or so as we just couldn’t have afforded it.’

‘Cameron is a huge football fan, he supports Manchester United, so whilst we were in London we went on a tour of the Arsenal and Chelsea Stadiums as well as Wembley, he was in his element. We also got to do all the tourist things like seeing Big Ben, in particular Cameron liked watching the changing of the guard and speaking to the policemen in front of Buckingham Palace. We had a great break that we were very much in need of.’
