Who we are

Matt’s Respite Retreats was set up by Mel and a group of friends who share a similar vision.

Mel lost her husband Matt in 2014, just eight days before the birth of their first child, Faith. Matt had bowel cancer for four years.

Matt and Mel were lucky enough to be sent on holiday three or four times at no cost to them. Knowing the difference it made just to get a break from treatment and the reality of living with a diagnosis inspired, Mel to set up this charity and purchase a caravan at Weymouth Bay Haven site to provide short breaks to those affected by cancer.

One of the main ways Matt's Respite Retreats funds the Respite Breaks offered is by renting the caravan during the School Holidays.  Book a break and help us to provide more breaks to those affected by cancer.
