The Cotton Districts Convalescent Fund

The purpose of Cotton Districts is to provide, for people 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*. Recipients will be able to take holidays on alternate years only.

*The cost of the holiday must be invoiced to the applicant as the Charity does not take any liability with the provider for all or any 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.

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