The funds will be used for the ongoing maintenance of Chloe’s Den – a new accessible caravan at Park Leisure’s Amble Links site.

The holiday home was named in memory of Chloe Gilbert, aged nine, who inspired Out of Sight’s fund-raising venture for the respite caravan. The charity was formed by parents of children with serious visual impairments and multiple disabilities.
