Center Parcs has a proud history of supporting charities that make a difference to families across the UK. We are passionate about supporting organisations that share our ethos of bringing and keeping families together.
Since June 2016 our main corporate charity partner has been Together for Short Lives, the UK charity that speaks out for all children and young people who are expected to have short lives. We are proud to match fund donations made by our guests either through our website or Contact Centre and donate 25 breaks a year to the charity.
Together for Short Lives raises awareness and funds for the UK’s 54 children’s hospices that deliver lifeline care and support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families. During our three year partnership we hope to raise awareness and vital funds to support the thousands of families who are caring for a seriously ill child. Visit the Together for Short Lives website to learn more about this incredible charity.
As well as national support, each Center Parcs village fundraises for their local children’s hospice, allowing them to make a real difference to their local community. Find out which hospices our villages support below:
In addition to our partnership with Together for Short Lives, between spring 2017 and spring 2018, we have pledged break donations to the following charities, so they can give families in need of support, some precious time together:
- Willow Foundation
- Ally Cadence Trust
- Amy’s Retreat
- Give Us Time
- Josie’s Dragonfly Trust
- Leon Barwell Foundation
- Lynsey Ivison Trust
- Teenage Cancer Trust
- Winston’s Wish
This further support is reviewed on an annual basis.
Center Parcs receives a huge volume of charity requests each week and whilst we try to spread our support as much as possible, we are unable to help with every request due to the sheer volume.
If you would like to make a request, please contact our PR team by emailing email@example.com with as much detail as possible. You will receive an automated response acknowledging your email and we will get back to you within four weeks if we can help. Please note, we are unable to provide donations or prizes for raffles and auctions, or discounted breaks.
Together for Short Lives is a registered charity in England and Wales (1144022) and Scotland (SC044139) and a company limited by guarantee (7783702).
"We had a lovely time at Center Parcs, it is so hard going somewhere where my sons needs are catered for. Such a memorable break for us all. We really did have a lovely time, so nice to get away from our normal daily life."
