Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is delighted to have been selected by Waterside Holiday Group as one of the beneficiaries of their fundraising drive this year. Waterside Holiday Group operates three parks in Dorset and will host an array of fundraising activities throughout 2022 in a bid to raise a total of £25,000, to be split between our life-saving charity and Dorset Mind.

Amongst the activities, will be Waterside Holiday Group’s longest charity walk to date, with team members trekking from Chesil Vista Holiday Park to Core Castle in a 30-mile challenge in July. The company is also hosting a ‘Leadership Team Auction’, inviting employees to make a silent bid on senior team members to switch jobs within the company for a day.

Neil Quantrill, General Manager at Waterside Holiday Group commented:

During these turbulent past couple of years, local charities have needed our support more than ever before and we’re proud to have continued our fundraising efforts. This year, we want to go the extra mile as we return to a more ‘normal’ routine, so have set an ambitious fundraising target to support two highly respected local charities – as chosen by our team.

We believe our fundraising efforts should be a collective effort, which is why we’ve asked all our employees to share creative ideas for how we can reach our goal. I’m looking forward to coming together with fellow colleagues to help Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and Dorset Mind continue making a substantial difference within our communities.

Our team of volunteers and staff here at Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, pride ourselves on supporting those who support us. We are absolutely delighted with this news and can’t wait to work alongside everyone at Waterside Holiday Group throughout the year. It’s going to be so much fun!
