Charity of the Year
We are proud to announce that Pod has been chosen as our charity of the year for 2014.
Pod is a wonderful children’s charity dedicated to providing children in hospital throughout the UK access to a variety of fun entertainment. Being in hospital can be a traumatic and anxious experience for any child. It is through the work of Pod that children can now enjoy visits from fantastic entertainers, ranging from puppeteers to magicians.
‘’Pod first entertained in Great Ormond Street Hospital in 1977 and has been creating smiles ever since.’’
At the moment Pod reaches around 80% of relevant hospitals in the UK. With more support and exposure in the future that could be taken to a full 100% coverage!
We can’t wait to get involved and help this important charity. Look out for updates on how we will be supporting Pod and keep track of our fundraising activities. Find Gully Mouse on Facebook and Twitter to receive regular updates on our progress.
You can find out more about what the charity does and donate to them through their website.
The Gulliver’s Mile
Take part in our Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 23rd March to help raise money for charity and enjoy a day of family fun. The mile will take place through Gulliver’s World Theme Park and its beautiful surroundings. While most of the rides and attractions will be closed, there will still be a variety of spectator activities to keep people entertained on the day. Every participant in the Sport Relief Mile will get one Gulliver’s day ticket to use in 2014, so there’s no reason not to get your running shoes on and join in!
Macmillan Coffee Morning
We’ll be supporting the Macmillan coffee morning in our Splash, Spy and NERF Zones in September 2014. Check back soon for more details.
Raft Race Fundraiser
To celebrate the annual Matlock Boxing Day Raft Race we opened our indoor attractions to the public at a discounted price. We are pleased to announce that the money raised from NERF and Spy Zone raised £340. This will be donated to the four official charities supported by the Raft Race event. A huge thank you to everyone who visited us on the day!
