Have your say

How do you fancy the chance to get away from it all on a free holiday?

Well now’s you chance thanks to the charity, NBFA Assisting the Elderly, which provides free holidays for pensioners.

The next trip, a five-day Break-Away to Morecambe, from the March 3-7, 2014, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner, nightly entertainment and daily excursions, as well as coach travel to and from Morecambe. The coaches will pick-up from Milton Keynes, Bletchley, and Buckingham.

NBFA Assisting the Elderly is a national charity set up over 50 years ago to help people avoid loneliness in old age and their Breaks-Away have become very popular. One said: “I am like a snail that has come out of its shell and for that, NBFA, I cannot thank you enough.”

NBFA Assisting the Elderly’s Break-Away service gives elderly people a unique opportunity to meet other people from their local communities and to share new experiences. 

The charity’s president, The Rt Hon. Baroness Boothroyd, said: “Improving the wellbeing of the UK’s ageing population is an issue of national importance. NBFA’s coach trips to well-known holiday resorts have given many people who could not otherwise afford a holiday a wonderful chance to smile and make some lasting friendships.”

To qualify for the free Break-Away people must be aged 65 or over, on a low income, and able to get on and off a coach and to look after themselves. Anyone interested can call NBFA Assisting the Elderly for an application form on 020 7828 0200. Places are limited.
