Center Parcs and charity
Center Parcs has a long and strong background of charitable support, offering financial donations and gifts in kind to a range or organisations. We’ve been involved with a number of charities and appeals, both nationally and in the local areas surrounding our Villages.
We take very seriously our responsibility to help organisations whose values align with our company and, crucially, with our guests. Those values include the importance of family togetherness, and the belief that every family has the right to spend quality time together.
Together for Short Lives
We found a partner that treasures the same things we do; family time. Together for Short Lives (registered charity 1144022 and SC044139) is the leading UK charity that speaks out for the 49,000 children and young people who are expected to have short lives.
As part of their work they raise money for the UK’s 54 children’s hospice services so that they can continue to deliver lifeline care and support, allowing families to make their most of their precious time together, no matter how short. Children’s hospices are all charities and rely on support from the public and organisations like Together for Short Lives to deliver their crucial services.
Together with everyone who provides care and support to these children and families, Together for Short Lives are there to help families have as fulfilling lives as possible and the very best care at the end of life. They can’t change the diagnosis, but they can help children and families make the most of their time together.
Our aim in the next couple of years is to raise awareness and funds to support over 49,000 families who are caring for a child with a life-shortening condition.
How will we do this? Passionate staff across our Villages will be hosting one-off events, activities, competitions and raffles to support children’s hospices in their area. We’ll also offer ongoing professional support, sharing some of the expertise within our business with Together for Short Lives. Our guests will have the option to make a donation when they book a break with us, and we’ll match every pound you pledge.
