Since 2016, we’ve been teaming up with Go Beyond (formerly CHICKS), a national children’s charity, to gift free week-long breaks to disadvantaged kids across the UK.
At Oliver’s Travels, we host thousands of families each year in our villas and chateaux, so we want to provide those less fortunate with an equally amazing holiday and the chance to create long-lasting memories.
These children come from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances. For instance, they may be victims of bullying and abuse, or living in poverty, and many have been bereaved. However, the one thing they all have in common is that they could really benefit from a fun-loving trip away: a chance to splash in wellies, feel the sand between their toes, or scale a climbing wall for the first time.
That’s where you come in to help us make those experiences possible.
For every booking we donate 1% of our profit to Go Beyond.
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 come away with so many wacky stories and funny anecdotes from the kids and Go Beyond team. But even more importantly, we've seen the positive impact the retreats had on these children – that’s something we'll be forever grateful to have been a part of.
So, book your next villa holiday with us, and you’ll be helping to raise money for this wonderful charity.
