The Jasper King Trust

Apply for a holiday

As we are unable to take direct applications, we respectfully ask that families do not apply through the website.

Families are signposted to the Jasper King Trust via Maggie’s Centre in Edinburgh, which has provided critical support to Sharon and Jasper.

If you are receiving support from a Maggies Centre further afield but are interested in a respite holiday in East Lothian please ask your local Maggie’s centre staff to contact us direct.

The Process

The application process is open to families who already receive support from Maggie’s Centre in Edinburgh or cancer nurse specialists. Applications will be invited during the months of March and April for holidays in May and June of the same year and in the summer months for holidays in September.

We aim to keep the application process as simple as possible. We work closely with staff at Maggie’s Centre who will explain to families what is offered by the Trust. Maggie’s Centres introduce families to us via email or telephone and holidays are offered.

About Maggies

If you’ve ever been to a Maggie’s centre, you’ll know that they are special places, and many of them have won awards for their architecture and design.

Great design and architecture can help the people who come to Maggie’s for support feel better – and help us to give the best possible cancer support. 

Every Maggie’s is a unique place that fits perfectly into its surroundings – a home from home that’s designed to feel nothing like a hospital
