Coast star becomes ambassador of Family Holiday Association
Neil Oliver, who presents the BBC series Coast, is to become the next ambassador of the Family Holiday Association’s summer appeal, it has been revealed.
The charity provides short UK breaks to around 8,000 children and their families each year, typically to seaside resorts while staying in a caravan.
“The work of the Family Holiday Association really does make a difference. It would be wonderful to help me make our coast matter. Imagine trying to cope with the worst that life can throw at you but with no chance of an escape and with nothing to look forward to,” said Oliver.
“I really want to encourage everyone lucky enough to enjoy holidays and day trips to support this appeal. The money we raise will help children see the sea for the first time in their lives. Together we can help those families who can’t see any escape from the daily struggle of impoverished lives. Whatever you donate – it will matter,” he added
