BAAGS - caravan
Our caravan, also known as Carer-Van !
We are delighted to announce we have upgraded our CARER-VAN to a newer model. The new van has double glazing, central heating, window locks, full-size fridge & freezer, outside light - as well as offering a wee bit more luxury, an extra toilet, more cupboard space in all areas. We are sure the families who use our Carer-Van will be very impressed with the comfort and efficiency we are offering them.
Massive thank you to everyone who has donated money to this project,
sine 2011 money has been raised via a huge range of fundraising
events held by many wonderful people and attended/supported by
hundreds of very generous and supportive people - to you all who
have played a very important part - THANK YOU.
In February 2009, after a successful year of fundraising we were able to purchase the CARER-VAN. This luxurious 8-berth caravan is based permanently at Berwick Holiday Centre, Berwick-upon-Tweed. The holiday park is on of the Haven parks with all of the child-friendly, family-friendly amenities and services which are typical of Haven Holiday Centres.
Being within a relatively short travelling distance from anywhere in the Scottish Borders, on the main Newcastle – Edinburgh rail line and bus service, the Carlisle – Berwick rail link bus service and the Borders to Berwick bus service, we felt that anyone with an ASD, as well as their families and/or carers, would be able to get to the CARER-VAN to have a short break/bit of respite and/or a holiday. The CARER-VAN is fully equipped with television/DVD, fridge, cooker, microwave etc, so makes a great ‘getaway’ for anyone regardless of age and/or ability.
Berwick-upon-Tweed itself has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment, sport, shopping and historical value, as well as having beaches and coastal attractions.
