Re; H.O.A.L.T 2019
Its with great news that i inform you all the HOALT 2019 Children will be coming from Belfast for 2 weeks between 8th and 22nd May 2019
As you know H.O.A.L.T 2018 is now over and went really well, we are now starting to plan H.O.A.L.T. 2019.
We would like to take the opportunity to invite Provinces and Organizations from UK to submit possible candidates for this on-going opportunity to benefit under privileged children for a holiday of a life time. The Committee of H.O.A.L.T. would appreciate if you could forward this request to the secretary of HOALT .
The H.O.A.L.T. committee have discussed and agreed the following criteria, as a guide for HOALT 2019.
Age between 8 – 13 yrs
Preferably non passport holders/first time aboard.
10 children and adults required to look after the children during the holiday(numbers to be agreed).
Ideally all from 1 area and the area is willing to help with some of the administration and hopefully assist in fund raising.
Looking for under privileged children, who will benefit from the opportunity.
Dates for holiday between May and June 2019 for 7 – 14 days.
Applications from interested parties to be submitted by the end of September 2018
I would ask for all initial applications to be sent to myself at firstname.lastname@example.org

WHAT IS HOALT
‘Holiday of a Lifetime’ provides holidays for underprivileged, deserving children that they would not, in normal circumstances, ever dream of having. The children may be disabled, have special needs or be orphans, from low income families, special schools or children’s homes. Normally they are aged between 10 and 13. They are chosen because it is believed that they will get some special measure of benefit from the holiday.
The Holiday of a Lifetime scheme was started in Malta in 1962 by members of the RAF Regiment who were also members of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes. When posted to Cyprus in 1964 they continued the scheme from Cyprus. It has come a long way since those early days when the kids slept in tents on the beach and were looked after by the members of the Regiment. It has evolved since it’s very early beginnings and is now totally different and is run by the Cyprus Provincial Grand Lodge of the R.A.O.B. in conjunction with the local social services of the area where the kids come from.
