13 Romanian resorts
As part of caring for those with terminal illnesses in southeastern Europe, the not-for-profit organisation Hospices of Hope (01959 525110, hospicesofhope.co.uk/overseas) organises five summer holidays for Romanian children — patients, carers or bereaved relatives. The week-long trips are to resorts or camps and, whether it’s bonfire supervision, leading pizza outings or mucking in with games, volunteers are pivotal to their success. You’ll need to raise £550 to cover flights, transfers and full or half-board, plus some of the children’s travel costs.
