Book a Break, Give a Break

For the fourth year running, we’ve teamed up with CHICKS -  a national children’s charity providing free week-long breaks to disadvantaged children from all across the UK. 

At Oliver’s Travels we host thousands of families each year in our villas and chateaux, so we wanted to make it possible for those less fortunate to have an equally amazing holiday as well as helping them create long-lasting childhood memories.

Our incredible day with the kids

Read all about how much fun that was in our blog!

These children come from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances. For instance, they may currently be living in poverty, or are victims of bullying or abuse, and many have been bereaved. However, above all, the one thing they have in common is that they could really benefit from a fun loving week away - a distraction from their everyday stresses, and that is where you can help, because:

For every booking we donate 1% of our profit to CHICKS.

Every £15,000 we raise will cover the cost of a week’s retreat for 16 children. In 2017 we raised a whopping £21,700 in just 2 months, and we have been raising money with every single booking throughout the years since then. We've also had the chance to experience their retreats first hand twice now (visiting their Devon retreat in 2017, their Cornwall retreat in 2018 and their Derby retreat in 2019) and every time we just can't stop sharing the wacky stories and funny anecdotes from the times we spent with the children and the CHICKS team. But even more importantly, we've seen the positive impact the retreat had on these kids, just seeing all their smiling faces - that's something we'll be forever grateful to have been a part of.

So book your next villa holiday with us, and together we can raise money for this wonderful charity.
