Seven Parkdean Resorts holiday parks will join in the Big Brew Up national fundraising event for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

A percentage of sales from each park’s Afternoon Tea event taking place during Armed Forces Week, from 21-26 June, will be donated to SSAFA.

Each park will also be linked to a local SSAFA branch and volunteers will be on hand to support the activities.

Working with their local designated branches, the parks will also be holding a Veterans Christmas lunch later in the year for local veterans, whilst employees are able to help raise further funds on an individual basis by participating in a range of challenge events, including Salisbury Plain Cycle, 13 Bridges Challenge and Trek the Balkans.

The parks taking part are Cayton Bay in Yorkshire, Trecco Bay in Porthcawl, Camber Sands in Sussex, Lizard Point in Cornwall, Ty Mawr near Abergele, and Sandford and Warmwell, both in Dorset.

SSAFA is a national charity that provides welfare, health and support services for the UK military’s serving personnel (including reservists), veterans, and their families.

The partnership comes in addition to the work Parkdean is already doing with the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity to provide 145 free holiday breaks to service personnel at 10 holiday parks.
