WHAT DO WE DO?
The primary role of The
Alan Bott Centre (ABC) is to assist in the provision of holidays with care through
partnership with another charity – The Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) –
using their two care hotels located in Rothbury Northumberland and Lytham St
Annes on the Lancashire coast. This includes financial support.
The charity also provides transport to and from the holiday locations where ever possible at no charge. If ABC is unable to provide transport because of location, demand etc, a contribution towards transport costs is made.
Finally, the charity can provide funding support to people who qualify under the charity's objectives who organise their own holidays.
