News & Events Events Trip to Kingswood Centre *Update: This event will now no longer be going ahead in August. It is yet to be confirmed whether the event is cancelled or simply postponed. All attending families have been informed via email. * EVENT FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE WITH ALOPECIA (AND THEIR PARENTS!) We will be facilitating our FIRST EVER trip to the Kingswood Activity Centre in Dearne Valley! This event is a result of chats with individuals, groups discussions and surveys which highlighted a need for more events and opportunities for children and young people with alopecia to meet. In this setting children, young people and their parents are able to spend the weekend meeting others who understand their journey, build essential confidence skills and just have some fun! Children with alopecia (aged 8-14) along with their parents and siblings can join Alopecia UK for a weekend of nature and adventure activities all within the contemporary purpose built accommodation and high quality learning facilities at the Kingswood Centre, Dearne Valley. With fantastic indoor and outdoor activity facilities surrounded by the beautiful countryside of South Yorkshire with a purpose built watersports lake, Dearne Valley offers something for everyone. In family groups you will stay in either the 'Eco Pods' or the 'Adventure Lodges' and take part in our specially created timetable of activities. FURTHER INFORMATION LINKS As well as reading the terms and conditions above, please note: Prices can be found on the ‘accommodation options’ link above. Please take some time to understand the different accommodation options (and prices) before submitting your enquiry below. Note that the ‘Pod’ or ‘Lodge’ price includes your groups accommodation for two nights, activities and meals (AUK has subsidised the price of the event to try and make it as affordable as possible).
