Matt’s Respite Retreats is a service providing affordable breaks for those affected by cancer within Dorset, Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset. We support those who have been diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing treatment or have received treatment within the last six months or the beneficiary is terminally ill with cancer.
Matt’s Respite Retreats have the use of a two bedroom static caravan which can sleep up to six (including a pull out double bed in the lounge). The caravan has two bedrooms consisting of a double with En-suite bathroom and a twin room with a bathroom across the hallway. For a small charge (currently £50-£60) you are able to take a three or four-night stay. Passes for the pools and entertainment complex are being very generously given free of charge by Haven. If you need help with funding this then we are able to direct you to other charities who will consider funding these for you.
