During December and January, bookings made for some of the holiday properties available on our website will generate a donation to help send an underprivileged child on holiday. The properties are those that are offered at French Connections by one of our trusted partners, Oliver’s Travels.
Oliver’s has teamed up with CHICKS, a national children's charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK. For every booking, a donation of £30 will go towards the aim of raising £15,000 to cover the cost of a week’s retreat for 16 disadvantaged children.
CHICKS began in 1992 and has since provided over 13,500 children with a much needed break. The children might be living in poverty, be young carers, be victims of bullying or abuse, or have been bereaved. The one thing they all have in common is that they could really benefit from a week away from their circumstances.
Children are referred by professionals (for example, teachers or social workers) so CHICKS can help those who need our support the most. A holiday inspires new confidence and gives children the chance to have fun, enjoy new experiences and relax.
The donation applies to properties on our website that show the message, ‘This property is bookable live via our trusted partners Olivers Travels.’ Search our gorgeous holiday properties in France for your 2017 holiday now.
