Stacey, 14, is one of five children in a family with little money. Though she has low self esteem and confidence, of her own initiative she contacted a dance group and was offered a day place in London.

When she found that the family could not afford to pay for it, she was in tears.

IHHC was able to step in and pay for her trip.

David, 13, is extremely intelligent, but has autism and OCD. With a few other select pupils from his class, he was offered a week's educational trip to Oxford.

This was only practical if Dad could come with him to look after him.

IHHC paid for bed and breakfast accommodation for them.
