All at Spectrum Turkey (Dalyan), at Villa Cabrece are proud to support Ambitious About Autism by offering holidays for fund raising events.  Last year with the help of the fabulous Cathy Underwood (Yoga4Mums) we raised £1,000 and gave several holidays away, plus a further £1,000 when a holiday was auctioned in November for this year.

These last few weeks we have offered a further 4 holidays for fund raising events – the London Marathon being one.

Last night, 8th April, we held the first draw for the fund raising we are doing ourselves – asking guests and people we know to donate to Ambitious About Autism, or a charity of their choice, for their names to go into the draw.  We’ve raised a few hundred pounds so far with the next draw taking place on the 9th May (the anniversary of my daughter’s passing – Rebecca, who happened to have Down’s Syndrome).  Helen, who won the holiday and is already booked to return for her 4th holiday, plans to come in October and bring her son, who happens to have Down’s Syndrome.

Having been a single parent of a child with ‘special needs’ who had serious medical issues I have an understanding of some of the issues which the children and parents in similar situations need help and support with.  It is my dream to have a dedicated week for parents and carers to come together at Spectrum to take a much deserved holiday, enjoy some time out and be with like-minded people.  It’s a healing environment being surrounded by natural colour therapy.  I’d also be happy to share some of my skills, to show our guests Meridian Tapping (EFT) which I believe is a healing tool for life – a natural, safe and proven technique which is thousands of years old.

Thanks to all who have donated so far, it is very much appreciated, brings a warm glow when I think of you.  Sending gratitude and appreciation to all who come and share Spectrum with us and all who spread the word.  We are truly blessed.
