CROWHURST PARK HOLIDAY LODGE
At the start of 2017 Tenderheart made a decision not to replace the Tenderheart Holiday Home and to take a new direction and opt for the use of a modern luxurious lodge; continuing to support families with sick children to enjoy a five star holiday in the beautiful sussex country side. It is situated at Crowhurst Park Holiday Centre near Battle, East Sussex offering a tranquil setting. The holiday home is heated, double glazed and can be used ten months of the year.
As we are a small charity that wants to continue Colleens good work in allowing families with sick children to enjoy a holiday in between hospital treatments, we are only able to accept referrals from the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital, the Ellenor Foundation and other specific hospitals and organisations.
Tenderheart regrets that we are unable to accept individual request to use the service. Staff at Crowhurst Park where the holiday home is situated are unable to answer any questions relating to the charity and the services provided.
