I know when I was a kid, many, many years ago that even though we lived in rural Lancashire there was nothing quiet so fantastic as the summer holidays. Just being outside, in the ‘wild’ as we thought of it then, and then the summer holidays spent in North Wales by the sea. Undoubtedly my interest in all things outdoors stem from those times.
How fantastic would it be for an inner city kid to experience the same things I did all those years ago – probably not something that occurs to many of us but there’s an organisation called The Fresh Air Fund based in the States in New York that’s doing exactly that through out the USA and Canada.
If you’re from the other side of the pond why not look them up and maybe if you’re able, you could give a kid an opportunity to experience the same fantastic outdoors that you did when you were a child.
