In the run-up to Christmas, Fields in Trust celebrated our partnership with The Caravan Club.
Last summer The Caravan Club launched “Tourer Explorer” a new family focused initiative that encouraged children to go exploring on the caravan sites and holiday parks they were visiting. Children have a free activity pack and are invited to follow treasure trails and explorer challenges. In addition The Caravan Club sold pocket-money toys including mascots, Andy Venture and Holly Day; they have donated 10% of the profits made from the sale of Tourer Explorer items to Fields in Trust.
Fields in Trust are delighted that the Caravan Club is supporting our work with the proceeds from Tourer Explorer pocket money toys; the donation was presented at the Caravan Club Christmas lunch in December by Chief Executive Nick Lomas (right) and accepted by Richard McKeever Fields in Trust Communications Manager.
This will help us to secure playing fields, parks and playgrounds for future generations. We know that members of the Caravan Club share our concern to ensure outdoor space remains freely accessible for all to enjoy.
Caravan Club Chief Executive Nick Lomas said: “We are delighted that, from the sale of Tourer Explorer merchandise on our 65 Tourer Explorer sites across the UK, we have been able to raise funds to support Fields in Trust this year. We recognise, just like Fields in Trust do, the importance of outdoor spaces for families of all ages to enjoy together, for fitness, fun and relaxing time together.”
The work that Fields in Trust undertakes to protect playing fields and other recreational spaces would simply not be possible without our members, supporters and partners.
