Our Charity of the Year


In 2016, we are delighted to be supporting Winston's Wish, as our offical Charity of the Year for the second year running!

As a day out enjoyed by many young families, it was important to us to choose a charity dedicated to the welfare of children.

Winston's Wish helps young people re-adjust and rebuildgirl_blowing_bubbles3_10861.jpg their life after the death of a parent or sibling.

By providing professional assistance before, during and after bereavement, they help the child to better understand the nature of loss and offer practical support and guidance that many need in order to cope throughout the grieving process. 

The West Sussex branch of Winston’s Wish began in September 2006 and has thrived ever since. 

As with last year, a great deal is planned for the partnership
including group visits, support and fundraising. Winston's
Wish will also continue to have an ongoing presence at the
Park and we look forward to Families_from_Winstons_Wish_during_their_visit_to_Drusillas_Park.JPGworking closely with the charity for another year to help support the fantastic work they do.


How you can help

You can help us support Winston's Wish by adopting our beautiful red panda Mulan. You will not only contribute towards the upkeep of our animals at the Park but 20% of the proceeds from each adoption of Mulan will be donated to Winston’s Wish.

Fundraising Ticket Requests

We get a huge number of requests for free tickets to Drusillas for raffles, Fayres and charity events, therefore we have made the decision to only send tickets out to those charities who fit the following criteria:
  1. We only send free tickets to registered charity’s or their fundraisers, bone fide fetes and Christmas fayres or   schools – provided they are within the following counties - East or West Sussex, Kent or Surrey.  
  2. All schools should write to our Education Department on headed school paper with details of the relevant event and with an enclosed A5 stamped addressed envelope.
  3. Registered Charity’s and fundraisers should send a letter on headed paper with details of the relevant event and with an enclosed A5 stamped addressed envelope. 
  4. We provide two free tickets to Drusillas which are eligible to be used at any time of the year but they require each free ticket person to be accompanied by another person paying the full entrance price. 

If your event or cause fits these criteria please follow the instructions above and your tickets will be sent in the post.
