Well we are all packed up and have just left kiln park and are on our way home, we have had such a lovely chilled out week…we would like to thank Rose and Wayne  for letting us stay in both of Ieuan’s holiday homes again…we are so very grateful to you for letting us have this opportunity thank you and we couldn’t do it without the help of our crossroads staff who have been there helping us in the evenings to get the girls to bed doing night shift and then getting them up again without this help we couldn’t have come on holidays…it’s so nice to spend quality time together without the stresses of everyday life and making more precious memories


Hi Wayne and Rose
We would all like to say a huge heartfelt thank you for letting us stay at your amazing caravans last week. We stayed from Sat 15th august and had a fantastic time with the added help of family support part of the week and carer support the rest. We really don’t know how to thank you both enough for providing us with a fab holiday which has given us many happy memories to treasure. We are in awe at what you do for everyone in loving memory of your handsome boy Ieuan. Doing this I’m sure helps you to keep his memory alive . We aim to work on a bit of fundraising to help and will be in touch as soon as we work out what. Please see attached a few pics of our children…our precious boy Lewis (6) who is severely affected by Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and has had a rocky time since birth and his lovely big sister Holly (9) who enjoyed every moment. We have more pics too xx much love and thanks again, Nic, Matthew, Holly and Lewis xxx


Thank you so much for our lovely stay. We Have had to come home early due to Blisse’s health but we did all the thing’s we planned to do. Thank you for allowing us to create lasting memories. Lots of love from us all xxx


Leanne and Gill:

Thank you Wayne, for giving Carley a wonderful holiday it’s a pleasure to help so a lot more children can have the same time has Carley had with Leanne and Gill. Your generosity and outstanding family commitment to keep this Dream ongoing is amazing


The children are having a ball ,they got so much freedom & it’s lovely to see Anthony to having some independence going up to the clubhouse safety with the kids, he could never do this at home. Many thanks for our precious memories!


To Wayne & Rose we would like to say a very big Thank You once again for our lovely chill out week in your beautiful holiday homes 🙂 we have bought a few little gifts for Ieuan’s caravan and I think he approves because the girls call bells were going off on their own once again the day we bought the gifts back on Wednesday 🙂 we have had lovely weather once again and only time we’ve had rain is when we were in 🙂 you have such a special place there and we are very grateful to you both once again for giving us a chance to create those special memories love to you both big hugs from the girls love from The Fields Family


This charity has enabled us to have a family holiday together. We have two disabled children and one abled child. It’s so hard to go away as a family because of the nature of their conditions and the cost and space is a big problem. We stayed in a fantastic caravan in tenby West Wales with the most beautiful surroundings. The van is adapted for wheelchair users which gave us the space we needed. We didn’t have the burden of worrying about the cost of the holiday. We just couldn’t have afforded it as we have had our home adapted for both children this year and are still currently working to on it to suit their needs. The whole family were able to relax and not think about our worries for a precious week. We really didn’t want to come home. The van had little-added extras like an extra t.v and dvd s. Books and games which was a lovely surprise. We are hoping that we will be able to take advantage of this marvelous charity next year as do many other families. We have read all the other testimonials in their message book and they all say the same thing. F A N T A S T I C!!

Their amazing people it’s a great charity who deserves all the thank you because doing what they do helps so many family’s when family’s need them most

This year will be our 4th year having the opportunity to take our family away to this beautiful caravan very kindly funded through a lovely family who was in a situation as ours with a disabled child and found it difficult to go away on holiday and having somewhere that caters for our childs needs … these holidays we have had have been fantastic and very much appreciated , and we are extremely greatful to to Wayne and Rose Yendle for giving families such as ours the opportunity to get away from everyday life and spend time in a beautiful location with everything that is needed to enjoy and cater for all of our needs Richard Rhiannon Ryan Rebekka and Rhys Pullin x x

Amazingly inspirational family who strive to give kids with life limiting conditions a fabulous week away, to recharge , relax and make perfect , precious memories with their loved ones.

This is an incredible organisation offering families who cannot access holidays the opportunity not only to have a holiday but to make very special memories! The caravan is of an exceptionally high standard fully accessible and fully equipped to make your stay an extremely comfortable one! The position of the caravan makes it very easy for families to access the wide range of amenities available. For us as a family we have been able to make very special memories with both our disabled daughter and her disabled mum kayaking, swimming together and lots of laughter!

Leanne :
We had a fantastic holiday Courtesy of this charity , loads of precious memories where made + we simply can’t thank these people enough for it .

May I take this opportunity to thank Ieuanthelions memorial fund for giving us the chance as a family to make fantastic memories. We were lucky enough to spend a week in the fantastic adapted holiday home in June the aun shone the whole week and we had so much fun and memories that will stay with us forever. It is very hard when you have a disabled or terminaly ill youngster to find holiday homes that has been adapted to suit there needs. Thank you so much Wayne rose and everyone who helps you to raise the funds to keep these holidays going you have thought of everything possible to make things easy for us and we really appreciate it. Thank you again love the Thomas family xxxxx

What we love about Ieuan The Lion Memorial Fund is how it helps families like ours who have children or young adults with life limiting conditions. With all the hard work that the fund have done to fundraise to be able to buy not 1 but 2 holiday homes is amazing. The fund has now helped us for 2 years last year we found it very difficult as we have twin girls who both have a life limiting condition and need to take carers with us to help us…but this year with after all the hard work of Ieuan The lion memorial fund they purchased a second Holiday home and we were lucky to use the 2 holiday homes where the girls who are both 20 years old were in one with carers and we were in the one next door…this meant that we could enjoy a holiday with the girls without all the stresses of trying to do all their care needs in which are 24/7 and both need help with everything. So for the first time we can enjoy a holiday which feels quite normal as we could not afford to take carers with us as we would have to pay for them to stay with us so Thank you very much to Ieuan the lion memorial fund making it possible for us to experience some sort of normality your the best .
