hereward collegeA Coventry-based specialist college of further education is teaming up with one of the country’s biggest free musical festivals to offer care breaks to young people with disabilities.

Hereward College is launching the new respite service with a long weekend care package aimed at 16 to 25 year olds during Coventry’s Godiva Festival 2013 which runs from 5 to 7 July 2013.

College Development Manager, Alice Davey said: “Our young guests can look forward to a packed programme of live music from well-known headline acts as well as up-and-coming stars of the future. Our new service provides a quality-assured service and our guests will be able to make new friends and take home happy memories. We believe we are the first and only respite care provider in the country to offer this type of break.”

This year’s Godiva Festival line-up includes the legendary Echo & The Bunnymen and chart-topping X Factor finalist Amelia Lily, and there are a host of other activities to entertain and excite including comedy, rhythm tent and food and craft stalls.

Lee House, Events Manager at Coventry City Council said: “We are delighted that Hereward is theming a weekend around Godiva. The Festival is a truly inclusive event with excellent facilities provided for those with disabilities, and we are sure this unique respite package will be an unforgettable experience.”
