Joe is one of the carers who was recently awarded the holiday grant of £300. He booked a short break in Wales with National Express which cost £199 and used the rest of the grant to put towards spending money. Joe and his friend stayed at the Bay County Hotel in Llandudno for a few days at the end of September.
Joe went on sightseeing trips whilst in Wales, the weather was “brilliant” and, as he wasn’t under any stress, he found he did not suffer as much pain with his own medical conditions. The break has definitely “lifted his spirits” and he has returned refreshed. During the holiday, one of the locals informed Joe that Samuel L Jackson and Jude Law had stayed in the area last year whilst filming and Bear Grylls had been filmed rock climbing in the area of the slate mine.
