First BA, now Butlins!
Posted: 8th Jul 2011
It was only last month when I became so outraged that I felt the need to Blog for the first time…… now I’m at it again!
This time it’s not BA it’s another British establishment, Butlins…. Considering these financially challenging times they apparently feel it appropriate to discriminate against a group of adults with a learning disability who want to go on holiday and have fun. Aaargh……
The group, from Sheffield, have been going away to Butlins together for a number of years and really look forward to it. It’s their highlight of the year. This year they tried to booked as usual but have been told that the group intimidates children and so they can’t go. The group has got bigger over the years and you can imagine that a large group of adults going somewhere like Butlins together might be intimidating but I bet Butlins wouldn’t be turning down a large Hen or Stag group, right?
Has anyone else experienced this kind of discrimination? How did you react? Would love to hear from you as this has really frustrated me, again.
