The Cotton Districts Convalescent Fund

The purpose of the Cotton Districts Convalescent Fund is to provide, for people who live in the area of benefit and are convalescing from illness or suffering from permanent disability, a week’s subsidised holiday, half board, at the Charity’s nominated hotels in Blackpool and Lytham St Anne’s or with a contribution from the Charity of £200, a holiday elsewhere in the UK. This is subject to the satisfactory completion of Income and Medical Forms supported by a ‘sponsor’ such as a doctor or social worker confirming the medical and financial circumstances.

If the applicant is too ill to take the holiday without a carer, support will be given also to the carer.

Area of benefit

Counties of Lancashire and Greater Manchester; the District of Calderdale in the County of West Yorkshire; the District of Craven in the County of North Yorkshire; the Districts of Macclesfield and Warrington in the County of Cheshire; and the District of High Peak in the County of Derbyshire.

*Please note: The cost of the holiday must be invoiced to the applicant as the Charity does not take on any liability with the provider for all or part of the cost of the holiday. Upon receipt of the invoice from the applicant, together with proof of payment, the Charity will send the applicant a cheque for £200
