11 siblings and 2 Julia's House staff arrivied Saturday and enjoyed activities including sailing, windsurfing and stand up paddleboarding. Parents were then invited down to the beach to watch from about 2pm on the Sunday before their departure.
Managing Director of Rockley, Pip Woods said; "It was fantastic to see the children have such a great time. Through our relationship with Julia's House we have realised that supporting the whole family of a poorly child is such an important part of what the charity is all about and we are happy to be able to help."
Steve Mills, Challenge and Events Fundraiser at Julia's House said of Rockley; "These events with the siblings make such a difference to them and their families and I cannot tell you how highly our relationship with Rockley is valued. I cannot think of another that has had such an all-around impact in such a short period of time. Your personal enthusiasm and interest in what we do is very special and rarely encountered in our work".
