Torch Holiday in Scarborough, April 2018
Posted: 18th January 2018 by Julia Hyde
After 4 excellent years in Whitby, we are moving to Scarborough. Cober Hill is a well-equipped conference centre that was founded by the Rowntree family of chocolate fame. The 3-night holiday is specially geared for those with sight loss. Guide dogs welcome! Sighted helpers welcome too.
There will be the usual programme of trips, Bible teaching, fun and fellowship and a musical evening. The dates are Tuesday April 10th to Friday April 13th 2018. Details from David Judson (Leeds Torch) – email@example.com or 0113-2166411
Torch in brief
Torch Trust's aims can be summarised as enabling people with sight loss to discover Christian faith and lead fulfilling Christian lives.
Towards this end we provide Christian resources and activities for blind and partially sighted people worldwide. Our services are offered to all who experience sight loss, of all faiths or none, and including those with sight loss who have other disabilities.
Among our services, Torch provides Christian literature, including a free lending library and a range of magazines, in various accessible formats. We also promote Christian fellowship through 110 local Groups across the UK. Torch also runs a varied programme of holidays at our own holiday centre and at other venues around the UK and abroad. Our international arm involves Torch working in partnership with others and being involved in various projects, especially in Malawi which in turn serves the needs of blind and partially sighted people in various other African countries.
Torch Trust has a driving vision for people with sight loss, wherever in the world they may live. Our seven-fold charter is that every blind or partially sighted person may have the opportunity to:
- Explore Christian faith and discover Jesus
- Grow as a Christian
- Enjoy a fulfilling devotional life
- Access Christian activities and resources they need
- Join a church of their choice
- Develop their invaluable God-given gifting
- Contribute to the life of the church
