Our Charity of the Year
In 2013 we are delighted to be helping disabled and disadvantaged children in the UK by supporting Variety; the Children’s Charity as our official Charity of the Year.
As a day out enjoyed by many young families, it was important to us to choose a charity dedicated to the welfare of children.
Variety, the Children’s Charity gives disabled and disadvantaged children the chance to live enriched, independent lives by providing mobility through Sunshine Coaches and wheelchairs. Plus the specialist equipment they fund helps to make life a little easier for children with a severe disability.
Variety also gives vital financial support to community groups and youth clubs which offer disadvantaged children activities and interests which help to prevent anti-social behaviour and raise self-esteem. The ‘Variety at Work’ programme gives children the chance to enjoy fun and educational trips to theme parks, museums, swimming pools, cinemas and the seaside and we hope to provide some unique and memorable days out at Drusillas during the course of the year.
Variety believes every child should have the chance to enjoy
their childhood and be given the opportunity to realise their
unique potential regardless of disability or disadvantage.
Their commitment to support those children who need help
to triumph over the challenges of disability, illness and
disadvantage spans over 60 years.
A great deal is planned for the partnership during the course of 2013 including group visits, event support and fundraising. Variety, the Children’s Charity will also have an ongoing presence at the Park and we look forward to working closely with them to help support the fantastic work
