Military salute to Park Holidays UK helping families reunite
THE CHARITY enabling service families to reconnect after periods of separation has delivered a heartfelt thank-you to one of Britain’s largest holiday park groups.
Park Holidays UK is now providing no-cost holiday accommodation to 100 families every year, helping them to re-adjust to a life together after deployment.
The group operates over 40 holiday parks across Britain, and has teamed up with the Give Us Time charity to ensure that its holidays are enjoyed by the most deserving.
Founded in 2012 by former Army medic Liam Fox MP, the organisation matches donated holiday accommodation with military families in need of rest and rehabilitation.
It points out that often after six months away from home, family dynamics can change considerably and that getting back to normality can be a stressful time for all concerned.
Comments from families who have returned from a stay with Park Holidays UK are featured on Give Us Time’s website, and underline the benefits everyone enjoys.
Coming in for special praise is the quality of the accommodation and facilities on offer, and the friendliness of park staff which plays a big in creating a relaxing atmosphere.
“We feel very privileged to be able to play a small part in helping Britain’s dedicated military personnel to re-discover their family bonds,” said Park Holidays UK director Tony Clish.
“Making a difference by supporting charities and good causes has long been part of our business culture, and goes back over 35 years to when the company was started.
“As well as national bodies such as Give Us Time, individual parks also often fundraise for local organisations with park management and staff taking the lead,” said Tony.
