A charity dedicated to giving holidays and trips to disabled people is appealing for help cleaning its caravans for guests.

Littleham resident Glen Wilson, 54, who for the last decade has rolled up his sleeves and cleaned Dream-A-Way’s caravans based at Sandy Bay and Ladram Bay, is gearing up to help out again this year.

Glen has signed up to the charity’s Because I Can campaign, which encourages volunteers to come forward and offer a few hours of help.

Glen said: “I am a carer and have my own health concerns. I’m delighted to volunteer for Dream-A-Way again this year

“Being able to give something back is both rewarding and satisfying. I’m so proud of the work we do with the caravans.”

Jeff Merrett, Dream-A-Way chairman, said: “Our caravans are fantastic and everyone enjoys great holidays at Devon Cliffs and Ladram Bay.

“We really are so proud of our small team of volunteer cleaners, who work hard to ensure the caravans are always spotless.”

Dream-A-Way has nine caravans that need cleaning and maintaining. Help is needed most Saturdays, between 10am and 1pm.

To volunteer for the charity’s Because I Can challenge, call 07796 442144.
