James went away last October during his school break to see The Flying Scotsman. He loves travelling by train and when we saw this opportunity for a trip on the Flying Scotsman we knew he would love it. Before going on the train he had a look around the transport museum in Bury. Without the funding from Take a Break we could not have managed to fund this trip for James.
We also arranged for him to go with his Grandparents and his Auntie who provided his support for him over the week, this gave Mum/Dad & sister some well deserved respite. James does not every go away from home without us but this trip encouraged him to leave us for the week and he loved it.
