Waterside Holidays offer a treat to Weldmar team members
Weldmar has been Charity of the Year for the Waterside Holidays Group in Dorset
Our thanks go to Waterside Holidays Group who have been supporting Weldmar Hospicecare throughout 2019 as their ‘Charity of the Year’.
Members of staff have taken on a number of fundraising challenges, including:
- A 23 mile sponsored walk from Osmington to Chesil Beach, including a loop around Portland
- Adding a charity round to their weekly bingo nights
- Holding activities at their Owners’ Picnic events
Throughout the year, they have raised more than £7,800!
Not only that, but they have rounded off the year by offering a special treat for Weldmar Hospicecare staff, as they’ve donated vouchers to us for free use of their spa.
Allen Main, General Manager of the Waterside Holidays Group says, “We are pleased to have been able to support the vital work of Weldmar through another season of fundraising across our three holiday parks. Our team have been organising charity events, completing sponsored walks and collecting change in our retail outlets to support this fantastic local charity and we’re looking forward to continuing this in the 2020 season.
The dedication of all the team at Weldmar is inspirational, I’m glad that we’ve been able to show our appreciation for their hard work and this important cause.”
Fiona Hansford from Weldmar says, “Waterside have been a fantastic partner to work with throughout 2019 and they have not only raised a wonderful amount of money but they have supported us in other ways too, including loaning us meeting space and donating spa vouchers for prizes. I am absolutely delighted that they will be sticking with us for another year and I cannot wait to see what the 2020 season will bring!”
