At Gulliver’s we continue to support a diverse range of great charities to help people in the local community and beyond.
Our Charity of the Year
Ever since 1977 Pod has been improving hospital experiences for children, providing them with magical shows and great entertainers. We wanted to do all we could to help this fantastic charity as they continue to create smiles all over the country and in January 2014 our partnership officially began.
Pod entertainers range from magicians to puppeteers and we thought it was a good idea to send Gully Mouse along to see the shows in action. Across all three Gulliver's Theme Parks we have been working to raise funds for the charity throughout the year. Our aim is to help them provide more shows to even more hospitals over the coming months.
Come and discover just how much of a difference Pod can really make to children in a hospital near you by heading to their facebook and twitter pages. Alongside Pod we’ll be posting updates about our combined fundraising efforts with exciting events such as The Toddler Plod.
The Toddler Plod
In September 2014 we hosted the first ever toddler plod right here at Gulliver’s. People came from far and wide to plod for pod and raise money for our charity of the year. It was a chance for our guests to see some pod entertainers in action while taking part in a fundraising event bursting with fun and games. After the plod everyone was given a special prize pack and our little participants got to enjoy special rides and attractions on park. Thank you to everyone who took part and we have loved seeing your wonderful feedback since. We certainly can’t wait to host another toddler plod next year!
The Trussell Trust
Our food bank weekends have created huge amounts of donations over the past 12 months. We would like to thank our guests for their continued generosity. In May 2014 our Warrington weekend alone generated over 1200kg of food. These donations will go towards helping people in difficult situations throughout your community. We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future. Check out our social media channels and the 'event & specials' section of our website for information on any upcoming food bank weekends.
Dreams Come True
Our partnership with Dreams Come True has evolved rapidly over 3 years and produced remarkable results. The charity is dedicated to bringing joy to children suffering from life threatening illnesses. We have created a strong history with Dreams Come True that includes some very special events such as the 7 hour Dance-a-thon, the 3 peaks challenge and even completion of the London Marathon. In fact we have such a long and proud partnership with Dreams Come True that we couldn't fit all right here. Find out exactly what we have achieved with them on our Dreams Come True Page.
The Gulliver's Mile
In 2014 we hosted another sensational Sport Relief Mile with a record number of participants. The event based at Warrington included entertainment from Soccer Star Coaching and Hawks R Us. Visit the official Gulliver's Youtube channel to see the Gulliver's Mile in action. The money raised has been used to support projects throughout the UK and overseas. Everyone who took part received a commemorative Sport Relief medal on the day!
