Canvas Holidays announces Charity Partners
European outdoor holiday specialist Canvas Holidays have announced their charity partners for 2020/21 which includes continuing their longstanding support of the Family Holiday Association.
Canvas will also become an official partner of the NHS Charities Together in the UK, a charity dedicated to supporting the NHS. They fund research and development and purchase state-of-the-art technologies and equipment. The Covid-19 fund also supports staff, patients and volunteers making a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable or need extra help most.
Canvas Holidays will make an initial donation to each of the partner charities followed by fundraising throughout the year with staff in the company’s HQ in Dunfermline, Scotland . Canvas customers will be given the opportunity to make a donation at the time of booking their holiday. There will also be fundraising onsite in their resorts and holiday parcs throughout Europe once they are open again.
Michael Thompson, International Contact Centre Manager from Canvas Holidays said:
“We have always enjoyed strong partnerships with our chosen charities and our long-standing support of the Family Holiday Association is testament to this. This year we wanted say thank you to all the amazing staff and volunteers of the NHS who have done the whole of Britain proud in these times of crisis. We look forward to a busy year of fundraising and I know Canvas customers are generous and will welcome the chance to donate to these worthy causes.”
Kat Lee, Chief Executive of the Family Holiday added:
“We are extremely grateful and excited to be able to continue the relationship with Canvas. Over 10 plus years the dedication, effort and enthusiasm of Canvas staff and customers has been inspiring. The funds raised will go towards helping more families facing really difficult circumstances to get some time away from home. For them, a break from the everyday can be truly transformational.”
