Verdant reveals its charity of the year
Verdant Leisure, which operates the Riverside holiday park in Wooler,is to support When You Wish Upon A Star as its Charity of the Year.
The firm aims to raise £20,000 by hosting fund-raising activities at Verdant Leisure’s head office and charity open days throughout the summer at all seven of its leisure parks. It will also carry out monthly events including coffee mornings, cake sales and sponsored activities.
To decide what charity to support, Verdant Leisure called upon the help of its holidaymakers, owners and social media followers to vote.
Stacey Gibson, group marketing manager, said: “We are delighted to introduce When You Wish Upon A Star as our Charity of the Year. We’re busy planning some exciting events for 2017 and hope that our holiday home owners, guests and the public will join us in supporting this fantastic cause.”
When You Wish Upon A Star grants the wishes of children living with life threating illnesses. Since 1990 it has made over 16,500 wishes come true, from meeting Taylor Swift to family holidays at Disneyworld Florida.
Verdant Leisure, a bespoke holiday park operator with seven holiday parks in Scotland and the North of England, is investing over £2.7million in its portfolio for 2017. The company, established in 2010, has grown steadily and is now a key player in the industry.
