Family enjoy a much needed holiday thanks to Blesma

The Briscoe / Stranack family are smiling once again after Blesma helped them secure a much-needed family break.

After a year of ups and downs which were only magnified during Lockdown, Blesma Member Danny Stranack, partner Alison and their four children Elise, Megan, Abbie and George were in need of some well-deserved respite. Wanting to help the family relax and spend quality time together, Outreach Officer Kirsten stepped in to offer Blesma’s support.

Alison said: “We’ve faced quite a lot of personal matters the past year as a family and while trying to sell our house, we’ve been living out of boxes for nearly a year and trying to home school so we were all at the end of our tether. Kirsten got in touch and asked if we’d like to book a trip to escape our troubles. The break was fabulous.”

The family spent seven fantastic days at Haven Holidays Park in Brighton, where they enjoyed trips to the beach, the pier, the swimming pool and fully took advantage of the facilities available at the park.

“It was a lovely, chill out time for us all and a chance for us to be together for once. We had such a lift after coming back. We were all ready to carry on where we left off with the house move.”

Danny added: “I was going through a rough time with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and it’s been hard on my family, too. Blesma’s support went further than me. It helped Alison and the kids, too. I can’t fault Blesma. Kirsten and Mike [Downes, BSO North West] have been outstanding.”
