NURSES and ancillary staff from hospitals in Oxfordshire and Berkshire are being offered free family activity days during August.

The days are funded by the Teenage Wilderness Trust and organised by Path Hill Outdoors as a way of saying thank-you for all the endeavour and care the NHS has shown during the Covid-19 crisis.

The business hopes that the days provide a time of fun and respite and an opportunity to be with family.

Path Hill Outdoors explained each day there will be four household pods at Path Hill – each with their own instructor.

The activities on offer will include rafting, bushcraft, archery and woodland games.

The household pods will consist of up to six people from the same household or support bubble.

The use of pods will prevent the risk of transmission of Covid-19.

The Adventure Days start on Monday, August 10, and run for two weeks until Friday, August 21.

The Teenage Wilderness Trust is a charity set up to encourage the use of the outdoors and adventures to keep young people in mainstream education and is a keen supporter of the work at Path Hill Outdoors.
