One day out can make a huge difference. For the children and young people we support, it’s a chance to leave their worries behind, to try new things and make new friends. It’s a chance to simply be a child.
Due to family circumstances or caring responsibilities, most of the young people we support don’t have the opportunity to have a summer holiday. But thanks to the incredible support of our generous donors, Quarriers was able to give 1,036 children a carefree day in summer 2017. Our summer appeal enabled children and young people supported by our services across Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, Falkirk, Fife, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Stranraer and Dumfries and Galloway to enjoy trips to the seaside, nature trails, climbing, crazy golf, mountain biking and picnics in the park.
Our donors may have contributed to providing day trips, but they gave so much more: they gave fun, laughter and something to tell friends about when schools starts after the summer. They gave memories which will last a lifetime.
