Employees have raised over £300,000 over the past seven years, supporting almost 7 million carers in the UK.
The energy, enthusiasm, support and dedication of the team at Butlins was the catalyst in making the partnership such a positive and fun relationship. The teams at the resorts and at Hemel Hempstead were extremely inventive in their fundraising ideas from parachute jumping and annual golf days to the 400 mile cycle ride between the three Resorts and the recent coastal walk!
We were also very proud to have our President Her Royal Highness, the Princess Royal visit the Butlin’s Minehead resort. Around 75 carers and their families were invited to meet the princess to enjoy Butlins’ fun activities including circus skills, arts and crafts, face painting and story-telling.
Andrew French, Head of PR and Communications said “This partnership has been an incredible success over the last seven years, and I am amazed at the enthusiasm and dedication of our employees, working with Carers Trust to support thousands of carers over the years.”
Pushpinder Gill, Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager said, “We’ve been continually inspired by the extraordinary lengths Butlin’s employees have gone to in raising funds to support us. We'd like to thank them and congratulate them on all that we’ve achieved together.”
Thank you to everyone at Butlins especially the amazing employees, for all your efforts in raising money for Carers.
