Spotlight on our Golf Day
Becoming an event sponsor… with tifgroup & International Passenger Protection
Taking place on Wednesday 15 May, this year’s event honours the UN International Day of Families. Each year, participants enjoy a great day of golf hosted at one of the finest courses in the South East, which includes breakfast and 18 holes of golf, followed by a buffet lunch and prize-giving in the company of friends and industry colleagues.
This event wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic sponsors at tifgroup and International Passenger Protection.
Richard Smith, Managing Director of tifgroup said:
“The Family Holiday Association has been adopted by tifgroup as our headline sponsor in 2019. Having supported the Family Holiday Association in previous years, we are delighted to continue its support for such a worthy charity and indeed make it our headline charity. The memories and bonds created from a family holiday last a lifetime and have a positive impact long after the family returns home. The anticipation and excitement in the build-up to a holiday for a family going through a difficult time can be a release in itself.
“Life can, at times, be hard and what better way to temporarily reduce or remove life’s stresses than looking forward to and taking a family break away from the difficulties of everyday life. It is for this reason that we believe the work done by the FHA is so important and why the team at tifgroup are so proud to be supporting them. “

Spotlight on our Regatta
Registering a team… with ABTA
Our popular annual regatta is a great day of sailing on the Solent with a bit of healthy competition thrown in! Our 2019 event will be hosted by Family Holiday Association President Peter Long and ABTA Lifeline Chair Derek Jones, and is the perfect opportunity for team building or to entertain clients – not to mention win the coveted trophy!
ABTA have had a team at our Regatta every year since it’s inception and this year we’re delighted to join forces with their charity, ABTA Lifeline. This means that by taking part in this event, you will be raising money for two very important causes.
“ABTA has supported the FHA from the beginning – as a launch Partner and through in kind support over the years. The FHA is the only charity that has always had a place at The Travel Convention, alongside ABTA Lifeline. That is because the work of the FHA in our UK home community, complements the work of ABTA Lifeline with our own people in the UK travel community of employees.
“One way ABTA supports the FHA each year is that both ABTA and ABTA Insurance organise sailing teams, made up of industry partner Legal and Insurance firms, that participate in the Annual Regatta. We are delighted that this industry regatta is now a joint FHA and ABTA Lifeline event from 2019. It is a fantastic day and brilliant event for team building and networking, which represents great value for money while supporting the work of an amazing charity.”

Spotlight on our Skydive Day
Taking the plunge… with Kuoni
Taking part in a tandem skydive is a fantastic and exhilarating challenge, not to mention an unforgettable experience! As well as our annual skydive day that is open to everyone, we organise corporate skydive days for some of the lovely organisations that support us.
Individuals from Kuoni have been taking part in our annual skydive day for years, and in the past we have organised a skydive day exclusively for their teams.
Rachel O’Reilly, Head of Communications at Kuoni said:
“Adrenalin was running high at Kuoni when a team took part in a skydive adventure in aid of the FHA. The charity has been close to our hearts for many years, with our CEO Derek Jones being an ambassador and many of our team wanting to do what they can to support the needs of families who need a break from the day to day. At Kuoni we live and love travel and we believe that everyone, no matter what their circumstances, deserves time out. As well as being a terrific team building experience, it’s fantastic to know that we are supporting such a worthwhile cause. From the sailing day to skydives, we’re really proud to support the FHA.”
