Our charitable efforts
Charity is a vein that runs deep within the Park Leisure business. Whether it’s our Directors setting out on an intrepid cycling mission, our Head Office team tackling a fundraising challenge, our parks hosting fundraising events or even our owners raising money - we like to give back.
Throughout the years we have raised money for various charities and have lost count of the amount we have raised. Calling on business partners, staff, owners and the general public, we set ourselves a fundraising target each year for our chosen charity.
Charity of the year
We are delighted to announce that our chosen charity for 2018 are Candlelighters & Cancer Research UK.
In 2017 we raised over £116,000 for Candlelighters & Cancer Research UK., and we'd love to exceed this amount in 2018!
We’ll be supporting Candlelighters & Cancer Research UK throughout the year, with fundraising events and charity challenges across each of our parks. Plus, our Board of Directors will be undertaking an amazing cycling challenge ... details to be revealed soon!

Who are Candlelighters & Cancer Research UK?
We’re incredibly excited to support these wonderful charities again in 2018, here’s a bit more information about each of them:
Candlelighters: This exceptional charity supports children who are fighting cancer, as well as their families. Not only is money invested in children’s cancer research, but also in making hospital stays a little easier and helping both the children and their families stay connected to the outside world. They even fund holidays to help everyone spend time together and get some welcome respite.
Cancer Research UK: Needing no introduction, Cancer Research UK has saved
millions of lives through finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Funding both scientific research and the work of medical professionals, this incredible
charity’s mission is to ‘help beat cancer sooner’.
We are thrilled that helping to fight cancer is our theme this year, and we have loads planned to ensure we beat last year’s amazing fundraising total.
Our fundraising target this year is £100,000. We really appreciate any support you can give – even just £1 will make a difference.
