Charity of the Year

Making Every Moment Matter

Each year we choose a charity to focus our fundraising efforts on for the coming year, we are delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2023 is Oakhaven Hospice.

“Our vision is to make every moment matter by providing excellence in care and promoting the best quality of life for people living with a life-limiting condition and their families in our catchment area. Together with the vital support of our staff, volunteers, donors and supporters, we will continue to develop and grow our services so that our patients get expert, dignified, compassionate and supportive care when and where they need it.” – Oakhaven Hospice, ‘Our Vision’

Oakhaven Hospice is a pillar of our local community and very close to our hearts at Shorefield Holidays, with members of our team and their families, past and present, having been supported with palliative care, life limiting illnesses and all that it entails.

One of our Board of Directors Lesley Lawrence and her son Bobbie Lawrence, our Customer Experience Manager, lost their husband and father, Anthony, in November last year and Oakhaven provided amazing support to Anthony and whole Lawrence family.

“The Hospice is incredible and relies heavily on charitable donations and we are planning a very exciting year of fundraising events. All of the Shorefield Holidays team are given two charity days each year, where they can support charities dear to themselves or Oakhaven on one or both of these days if they would like.”Lesley Lawrence, Director

Coronation Shorefield

We have already made a great start on our fundraising with proceeds from our Coronation parties across the parks being donated and a whole host of other charity events planned for the year ahead, to keep the momentum going and raise as much as we can. There will be charity golf days, bike rides, cake sales and even a group of our staff daring to take on the 100-metre descent down the side of Portsmouth’s iconic landmark, Spinnaker Tower in the Oakhaven Abseil Challenge.

As well as all of our teams efforts to raise money, we also encourage our guests to donate when booking their holiday. For every £1 donated at the checkout, guests will receive one entry into our fantastic prize draw to win a short break for up to 6 people in one of our magical luxury treehouses.
